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:

Africa DevOps Day 2017

Africa DevOps Day is a great example of collaboration and knowledge-sharing across companies, and in true DevOps style aims to break down silos. It has been organised every year as a collaborative effort across some of the largest financials institutions in South Africa as a platform to share experiences and learning. The theme this year was “Scaling DevOps through infrastructure” and did not disappoint. There were amazing speakers, and interesting topics were covered. Hearing about the DevOps journeys that many companies in Africa have embarked on was fascinating.

I created sketchnotes of the presentations I attended, you can download the PDF version of the Sketchnoter’s Guide to Africa DevOps Day 2017 here. A full list of speakers and their presentations can be found on the Africa DevOps Day website.

Here are my sketches and some highlights of the talks I attended…

 

Brett St Clair – The Culture of DevOps

“when you are trying to make change, it always starts with culture”

 

Industry Update – Absa, Standard Bank & RMB

 

 

 

 

 

Kevin Rolfe – Putting the Ops in DevOps

“we need to free up people to handle exceptions and do valuable work”

 

Dan Acton – DevOps in the Cloud

“we’re moving towards no Ops”

 

Biase De Gregorio – Extreme Ownership

“start with good leadership principles as a point of departure”

 

Andrew Holt & Benjamin Hinson – Chef: Tools, Processes and Culture

“there’s no silver bullet solution”

 

A friend of mine @ALfriendo also did some awesome sketchnotes, and there are plenty of other great posts on #AfricaDevOpsDay Twitter.

All in all, a great day! I hope I’ll be there again next year…

Smart Growth – What we need in the face of 0% GDP

This conference was organised by our company, IQ Business, and was one of the most inspirational conferences I have been to – it truly makes me proud to be South African.

Although it’s a contentious issue, there is a lot we can do to stimulate growth in our economy and create opportunity for ourselves and others in South Africa.

It was quite a line-up with the top political, radio, research, technology and business personalities. Here are my notes…

Bruce Whitfield – The Upside of Down
