Earlier on today I tweeted that I’d like a community option when submitting a talk to DrupalCon Europe I'd love to see an option for "Community" sessions at @DrupalConEur "Coding and Development" will have to do.— Mike Bell (@mikebell_) May 26, 2015 As per usual 140 characters isn’t enough. @mikebell_ @emma_maria88 @DrupalConEur Used to have a track, not enough success. Try core convos they're usually more suited for this.— Théodore Biadala (@nod_) May 26, 2015 @mikebell_ @emma_maria88 @DrupalConEur its been tried before nobody shows up - so community summit on Monday instead— mortendk (@mortendk) May 26, 2015 no no no...
My colleague and friend Gem Hill has published her first podcast on Scrum and Agile.
It’s an interesting insight into the Scrum/Agile process outside of a developers perspective.
She raises some good points on the value of acceptance criteria and being flexible in it’s implementation.

Every morning I have the same routine, open email check for anything urgent, delete all mail from Jira (I get a lot) and then look at the agile board for highest priority issues. Recently this has been a lot of bugs. So I want to talk about why bugs are way worse than you can imagine. In jira bugs are represented as a red dot. Red is a cool (not cold!) colour in both Eastern and Western cultures. Unfortunately for us (western) red is associated with negative things like danger, stop, warning. So imagine seeing a sea of red first...
There I said it. I’m angry I want to punch the wall till my fists bleed.
I’m stressed and it’s starting to show, the cracks are appearing, I can feel my brain tearing itself apart.
I know what I need to do and I’ve set things in motion for that. I hate feeling like this and don’t want it to continue.
