5 Whys Challenge – Yehoshua Blank

So you’re going to a serious conference. It’s an agile conference so having BDD on the program makes sense.

Until you realize that the the B stands for Balloons. “Balloon Driven Development“.

What kind of session is that? 

Well it is about BDD, and Yehoshua Blank has decided that the best way to go back to agile concepts, and understand how we can work better. He’s also bringing real balloons, so breath in, breath out and get ready to blow things up. Playfully, please.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, here’s what Yehushua has to say in our 5 Whys Challenge.

  • Why should people come to the conference?

Fun and Agile? It is almost as good a combo as chocolate and peanut butter!

We all know it, but while in the trenches we sometimes forgot our focus. Reclaim that and have some fun with balloons at the same time

  • Why did I choose this topic?

When I take a step back and look at the bigger picture, I see that both myself, as well as my colleagues, forget the most important part of our job, and more importantly Agile. I went to help people remember.

Playing the Mikado. It is not only an opera, but CI as well?

  • Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

Watches were developed by hardware and software engineers who start counting by zero. Watches are worn by the masses who start counting by one. As such, the third hand is really the second hand.

Finally a scientific answer! Probably wrong, but sounds plausible. If you want to play with balloons, you really should come to the conference.

The road starts by registering, so do it now!
