What really are demos?

D – Delivered

E – Excitement

M – Milestone

O – Offering

That’s right, it’s a point in time where a software team gets to Deliver a beautiful piece of software that they are so Excited to be working on as it symbolizes a huge Milestone in their delivery plan, Offering it up to their stakeholders and team to offer feedback and guidance on as to how they should proceed with the tweaking and fixes before moving on to a new unit of work.

Maybe it doesn’t mean this, but maybe it’s a great way to think of what you are bringing to the table the next time you show your DEMO to the world.
