A Few Anniversaries (and one announcement)

There’s a light at the end of the oh-my-work-is-so-crazy train, and I look forward to ranting more often both here and on twitter.

But first, a few minor anniversaries to acknowledge. Monday was my 21-year anniversary at Microsoft. It’s not a nice even number like 20, but it’s weird to think that people born on the day I started (full-time) at Microsoft, can now drink in the U.S. While I doubt I’ll make it to 25, I doubted that I’d make it to 20…or 10, so this is definitely an area where I’m bad at estimating.

Meanwhile, the ABTesting Podcast just hit episode #40. That’s another milestone I never thought I’d hit, but Brent and I keep finding things to talk about (or new ways to talk about the same things). We should hit the 50-episode milestone (by my already established as poor estimates) before the end of the calendar year. I’m thinking of inviting Satya to be a guest, but I don’t think he’ll show up.

 testbashphilly[1]On the announcement front, I’m speaking at Test Bash Philadelphia in November. I’ll be talking about “Testing without Testers and other stupid ideas that sometimes work”. This is an evolution of a talk I’ve been giving recently, but I’m preparing something extra special for test bash that should inspire, as well as cause some great conversations to happen.
