So… while the agile world is debating whether or not Test Driven Development (TDD) is dead, I’m going to talk about something completely random.
Yes. You read that right.
I recently received a pen for speaking at a small Power User Summit in Broomfield, CO. I gave a 20 minute presentation on Agile basics for folks who had no idea what agile was. As a coach, I really wanted to dig into the meat of agile ideals, but I only had 20 minutes. The presentation was a success, and I got a few really good questions. A little later in the day one of the organizers presented me with a rather nice pen. I’m one of those people who appreciates a good writing instrument, and how it writes is more important to me than how it looks. This one writes well. I know it’s not an expensive pen. I don’t care. I like it.
But as I looked at the pen, I began wondering, “What is the coolest piece of swag I’ve ever received?” Sadly, pens like this one are about as exciting as it gets with me. I did get this cool flash drive from Agile For All with all kinds of cool resources on it, though. I love this flash drive. It’s awesome.
Then I became curious: What’s the coolest swag YOU have ever received? If you can, post a photo of said swag in your comments below.
