Kent Beck – The Product Development Triathlon

I’ve been thinking more and more about the 3X Model by Kent Beck while starting my own business. It really makes a lot of sense. The best part, is that it’s so simple.

We, in South Africa, have been fortunate to be visited by Kent Beck on a few occasions. Last year I attended an event, sponsored by Liberty and IQ Business, where Kent Beck came and discussed the 3X Model with us. With him being one of the original signatories of the Agile Manifesto and a all-round software development legend, I must admit that I was a bit of a groupie. It was fascinating – here are some visual notes from the session:

I’ve been working on a summary of Kent Beck’s 3X Model from his post on the Product Development Triathlon. Here it is:

Agile2017 – Orlando, Florida

We were fortunate to be accepted to present our Visual Thinking (Sketching outside the Box) workshop at Agile2017 this year in Orlando, Florida.  All I can say is “Wow”! What an amazing experience meeting awesome, like-minded people from around the world. I did behave a bit like a groupie, and yes, possibly asked for some autographs…

I have compiled a little booklet of all of the sketchnotes that I did from the conference – some light reading until next year (and for those who may not have been able to attend).
