Let's Test Conference - Update #3 + a bit of Update #4
07.05.12 - 11:36 - Filed in: Software Testing
I initially planned to write this update before the conference started but I achieved to deactivate my alarm clock at 7am when it rang and fell asleep again. That resulted in me waking up again at exactly 9am. That’s the official starting time. I jumped in my jeans, grabbed my messenger bag with my stuff and ran. I managed to arrive exactly at the time when Ola started talking.
Yeah, well, who is perfect. Perfection is unappealing anyway, isn’t it? To have shortcomings is what makes us human.
Alright, we had a very good Sunday. Oliver Vilson brought some cool puzzle gadgets to play with and Runö started to fill up with testers. We seem to have the whole compound for our sole use and it is a beautiful place because it does not feel like a cold conference center at all. It’s more like being with friends at a holiday retreat.
We discovered that Henrik Emilsson is my unknown brother. Have a look at both of us here:
Paul Holland gave a group of us a very useful introduction into LAWST-style facilitation. Every session will be facilitated and I am looking forward to the session on Wednesday I am going to facilitate. Great, haven’t done that before.
Later on Sunday many of the people I converse a lot on Twitter and Skype, etc., arrived. Hello my tester friends:
Simon P. Schrijver
Zeger Van Hese
Exellent conference and especially the food deserves an honorable mention.
