1. Defining good work.

    What does it mean to do good work? I recently encountered this question at a content creation workshop during a brainstorming session. This particular question brought me up short because I didn’t have an answer.

  2. Growing consultants without burning out

    My career in consulting is in covered in scars. One time I had a stakeholder scream at me on a call because we couldn’t figure out why a promised fax integration was failing (yes, it was in healthcare), all while the developer in the room with me was angrily gesticulating and mouthing swear words because the client didn’t understand.

  3. Consulting like Cucumbers - Prescott's Pickle Principle

    At Test Double, we talk about pickles a lot. This isn’t because our company is home to a niche subculture of foodies, although that would be awesome. It’s also not related to Cucumber, Gherkin, or the other tasty-sounding testing tools that I often baffle my search engine with1.

  4. Learning Go: A Diplomatic Approach

    Despite the fact that it’s been around longer than I’ve been a programmer, I feel like the buzz around the Go programming language has increased of late. This might be why, a few weeks ago, the company I’m working with announced their intention to start migrating portions of their Node microservices into Go.

  5. I love meetings

    I love meetings. Getting to know other people, understanding the challenges they’re facing, and searching for ways to help them succeed is tremendously fun and rewarding. Helping others navigate the software industry is a big part of Test Double’s mission, too, even when my direct involvement is limited to an introductory sales call.

  6. The Consultant's Code

    I wish we could have built it right the first time but we were learning along the way. Ugh, we got handed this mess and now we have to figure out what to do with it.
