We LOVE the Holidays at Blue Fish + ArgonDigital! Remember when Joy rewrote a few holiday tunes in our language? Well this year, we got some of the team to carol along before the All Hands meeting. Scroll to the bottom to see our favorite ones! It just so happened to coincide with fun sweater day.

And so you can see how much we love the Holidays, here are some pics of our team and the office decorations! We do a door decorating contest every year. As you can tell, we have a very creative crew!

Now for the main event. We give you the Blue Fish + ArgonDigital carolers!

Walking in Requirements Wonderland

“Users speak, are you listening,
In their eyes, features glistening
A beautiful sight,
They’re happy tonight.
Walking in requirements wonderland.
Gone away is the scope creep,
Here to stay is a new release.
Nothing will go wrong,
As we go along,
Walking in requirements wonderland.
On the whiteboard we can build a strawman,
Then pretend that it is set in stone.
They’ll say: Are you crazy?
We’ll say: No man,
But you can do the job
You’re not alone.
Later on, we’ll conspire,
To not cause a project fire
To face unafraid,
The plans that we’ve made,
Walking in requirements wonderland.”

Deck Our Desks

“Deck our desks with reams of paper,
Blah la la la la, la la la la.
Requirements out of vapor,
Blah la la la la, la la la la.
See the dull SRS before us
Blah la la la la, la la la la.
No way to tell if the doc is porous
Blah la la la la, la la la la.
Must we all read long lists of text
Blah la la, la la la, la la la.
Might you try some models, they’re best
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Tools and models make it better
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la!”

Hark the Herald BAs Speak

This was our toughest one…no judgment! 🙂

“Hark the herald BAs speak:
‘Gathered features for the week!
Please let us keep scope creep mild
We and coders reconciled’
Joyful, the team’s alive
Join the triumph with high fives
Sung to the agile-ist tune
‘Features are ready for the war room’
Hark! The herald BAs speak:
‘Gathered features for the week!'”

We Wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
