The Non-Technical's Guide to Technical Excellence
Outline/Structure of the Talk
I'm going to provide common myths in software development and try to unpack (or explode) them so non-technical decision makers can get an idea of why things like code freezes, adding people to projects, cutting quality to deliver faster don't work and often have the opposite effect than the one intended.
Participants will be be presented with hypotheticals and have to determine "BS or Not!"
I'll then explain why it is or isn't BS.
Better assess alternatives from technical leaders.
Learn to ask better questions.
Able to sniff out technical BS when its coming their way.
Non Technical decision makers
