Testing the agile piano!

Open your eyes and see agile and testing where you have never seen them before…

Agile is not just some trend or trick. It exists because the mind set really works. We use it in our daily lives. At least, that's what I discovered while studying the piano. I'll show you!

It all started when I asked a good friend of mine what her favorite music would be for me to play on the piano. And she came up with “I Giorni’, written and performed by ‘Ludovico Einaudi’. She really wanted me to play it, so I put it on the top of my list, well on my backlog I guess. I thought it was so beautiful, I immediately printed the music and for the first time in years I really studied music from paper again. And as I was practicing hard, it hit me. There are a lot of similarities between the studying I did and some aspects of agile and testing. Some examples: I do not study the whole piece at once, but first a small part (iterations? Brake down into small workable items?). And when I start a new part, I need to keep practicing the first parts as well (regression testing?). Of course I will also point out where playing the piano and agile and testing have a mismatch. Hopefully it will be a funny and entertaining session!
