A couple of years back, I ran a talk on how to apply some of BDD’s techniques to your whole life, and to life coaching.
I am very excited to announce that this year, at GOTO Chicago (April 23rd – 24th), I will be revisiting that talk, but this time I’ll be looking at some of the more crazy stuff we’ve introduced into BDD’s toolbox over the last few years, too.
There will be even more focus on Real Options and Deliberate Discovery – but I’ll be using Cynefin to show where, and how, you can usefully apply them in your life. I’ll be talking about Dan North’s “Three Ages” delivery pattern, and showing how that applies to our everyday activities. I’ll still be looking at well-formed outcomes as a test, but I’ll also show how we can never quite achieve the things we want the most, and every outcome we think of is just an example of what might happen. I’ll show how to fail, quickly and safely, using Feature Injection; how to get your life under test, TDD-style, before you refactor it; how and when to use real-life libraries and open-source to cut down the amount of work you have to do; and how to create your own for other people to use.
