small Oktoberfest @ Agile Testing Days.DE

A “Chill Out / Dinner Buffet” was originally planned at the evening of 2nd day at Agile Testing Days, the organizer was so nice that changed their idea, to provide us a small Oktoberfest (Check more about German Oktoberfest). And they dressed in kind of traditional clothes, at least traditional in a Chinese’s eyes…

The first part was summary of this conference, and the prospect of 2010 Agile Testing Days. Then it’s the conference dessert which I thought very good, even though I’m not sure if every conference has — the Prize Draw. One beautiful girl picked names from the big silvered bowl, who has a knot with her caestus, and it means she’s not married yet (as Jose said). Prizes include : one year “Testing Experience” for free; a bottle of Champaign (wine); two books of “Bridging the Communication Gap” (Gojko Adzik); a free ticket for Agile Testing Days 2010. And finally there was a special prize — “Agile Testing”, the book of Lisa Crispin.

We also had a band playing live show, they were old, but wearing also the kind of traditional clothes (one guy told later, this kind of thing only happen for people from Bavaria). The band was interesting, I guess they were playing the German national anthem, coz at the time everybody stand up and cheer, even someone was laughing. Jose told me the reason was everyday when German wake up and turn on the radio, it’s this song.

Check the video of the song 🙂

He also told me another thing regarding German — currywurst, the national food. I feel it’s just that, nothing special, neither too bad nor too good. Oh, by the way, the desserts on this Oktoberfest were also very good.
