How to talk about Software


In my last job the executive sponsor I worked with the most often one said, get everyone aligned on the talking points.

Spoken language is a kind of code.

When you give a demo of a particular feature you need to structure it as you would a unit test or a CI/CD pipeline.

Of course in software development you can do anything. BUT that is never an acceptable answer. People dont want to do anything, they want to do something. Software development is not about doing anything it is about doing something.

When we talk about software we need to focus on specific parts of software that we want to get feedback on. We can collect general feedback, but software feedback is not an opportunity for a free for all.

I am listening to an audio book at 2x and it is quite possible what I just wrote made no sense.
