Buzzword Bingo

RSS Feed RSS feed   

The Buzzword Bingo forum is a place to post examples of ludicrous, convoluted and meaningless buzzwords and marketing drivel dreamed up by those seeking to sound more important and meaningful than they actually are.

We are developers, which means our job is to simplify complicated and ill-expressed requirements in order to produce something elegant and useful. If you want to impress us then please just tell it to us straight. The less pre-processing we have to do the more we will be interested.

I had to give a QA presentation to the marketing people.

It went over their heads. I was asked "What are the 'key learnings' here? we need 'talking points' for the clients", to which I said "Tell them we test our software to make sure it will work properly."

They were not amused.

As a programmer/analyst, how does one communicate with the marketing types?

Paul.
