Collective nouns for software development roles

An embarrassment of Project Managers

An impasse of Architects

A confusion of Business Analysts

A mob of Developers

A silo of Testers

A brethren of Scrum Coaches

A waste of Lean Consultants

A conspiracy of Process Improvement Consultants

People are important, not roles! But recently I saw a weekly team meeting for a project that had 12 project managers! I thought it was a joke at first.

Can you think of any others?
