A Sketchnoter’s Guide to Agile India 2019

I was fortunate to attend Agile India 2019, hosted in Bangalore. It is Asia’s largest and first international conference on leading edge software development methods. Agile India is hosted by Agile Alliance and organized by Agile Software Community of India, a non-profit registered society founded in 2004. Their Vision is to evangelize new, better ways of building products and services that delight the users.

What an incredible experience all around. You can download a PDF of all the sketches here: Sketchnoters Guide to Agile India 2019

Here are the sketches I managed to capture:

That’s all folks. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

 

Real Life MBA Conference

How do we improve education, both formally and informally? How do we create a culture of continuous learning? How do we stimulate entrepreneurship and innovation?

These are all extremely difficult questions, and although we may not have all the answers now, it’s inspiring to see people stepping up and actively trying to address some of these questions.

 

Suits & Sneakers

Mark Sham is one of these people. A few years ago he started Suits & Sneakers to offer people access to great speakers for free! He made an assumption: if we make access to inspirational and informative speakers available to people for free, that they would come to learn. And boy was he right!

 

Real Life MBA Conference

On Thursday 25 May, he had the 5th Suits & Sneakers event and it was packed! The next day, for the first time this year, he also organised a full day conference, Real Life MBA, with a line-up of 24 amazing speakers across 4 tracks. The idea behind this format is that there’s no way you can watch all the talks on one day. So in order to get the full value out of the conference, all the presentations were filmed and will be made available to view afterwards. Mark has challenged everyone at the conference to set up working groups with colleagues and friends to go through the remaining presentations in 12 weeks after the conference.

To do my small part, I’ve put together a mini “Sketchnoter’s Guide” for the Real Life MBA conference. It only has the presentations that I could attend on the day – you can download the PDF here.

 

Here are some of the sketchnotes from the Real Life MBA conference:
