Join the Advent Calendar!

Have you ever heard of “Testing on the Toilet“? I hadn’t until Roland presented it at the Düsseldorf Agile Meetup: Some Google testers wanted to improve the (automated) testing done across the company. That’s why they started to hang up tips for testing in the toilets for people to read in their “leisure” time. They exchange the tips weekly.

Roland copied the idea for his company, not with testing but with all kinds of other topics such as “10 Tips for Maintainable Code”, “Admin Zen”, “9 Tips for Better Presentations”, “Agile Mindset”, “10 Vim Tips”, etc.

I liked the idea so much that I convinced him to team up, create a nice layout for these 1-pagers and make them publicly available. Just a few weeks later, we present to you:


There we’ll collect 1-page PDFs or images on Agile, Lean, development, devOps, system administration, Scrum and Kanban – ready for print out.

Right now, we’ve only published two sample posts, because we want to kick off the collection with an Advent Calendar. Although we’ve got ideas for most of the 24 slots, we think a greater diversity would be more interesting. Maybe you’ve got great, suitable content in your blog? Wonderful! Tell us about it – Contact us on Twitter or via email. (Please be quick and submit until next Monday, the 25th so that we can prepare everything for December.)

What do you think? Would you give it a try in your company? It’s not mandatory to display the bulletins in toilets 😉 Refrigerators are perfect targets, too!
