Conference blogging: end day 1

My second session, "System testing with an attitude," didn't really hit it for me. Supposedly we were being given a template for designing end to end cases, but what I wasn't seeing was how to deal with the situation where we didn't have good data about how real users would use the system - just vague use cases we are expected to test as best we can. And there were some notes in the presentation about "influencing the behavior in others" that weren't fully fleshed out and I suspect very important.

I also learned over lunch from a former Air Force guy that there are no fly zones on US maps marked as "Turkey Farms." He said he asked someone, "That's great, really funny. But what are they?" And the guy said, "Turkey farms. Turkeys are nervous birds. If you fly too low, they will freak out and die."
