Podcast Episode 45 – Christmas Dinner MVP

Season’s greetings from the Testing Peers!

As with last year we tapped into our ‘great’ creative minds to find a Christmas-themed episode that somehow is loosely associated with software quality.

The Christmas Dinner.

Can six friends reach a consensus to create a Christmas Dinner MVP (minimum viable product)?

For this year’s episode, the four regular Peers are joined once more by our good friends Shey Crompton & Beth Marshall.

As with last year, we asked our guests to nominate a charity for us to donate to this Christmas. Both Shey and Beth nominated the great Ady StokesMovember.

Beth breaks the ice, introducing the topic of Christmas comedy specials, before Simon leads us to the MetroRetro board he created for the main event.

The rules of the event are that we are planning Christmas dinner, as the six of us.

The MetroRetro board has five sections to it: Setting, Starter, Main Course, Puddings & Drinks

Join us as we progress through the episode we greatly model the art of collaboration and good humour, while whiteboarding together.

Once again a great thanks to Beth & Shey for their willing participation.

An extra special thanks to all of you lovely listeners, we thank you for your feedback and interaction, and we wish you a wonderful festive time, we hope that you are safe and well.
