On Thursday and Friday my team hosted a 24-hour agile event.  It was appropriately called Agile24.  Agile24 is basically a hack-a-thon where teams get together to work on anything that they want.

Self-organized teams, of up to eight people each, spent up to 24 hours together working to develop a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) of their interest.

This was a great opportunity for people to take agile and Scrum fundamentals from just theory to actual practice.

Along the way we had some educational sessions and a couple of optional workshops.  We went through a lot of coffee, Red Bull, and pizza through the night.  Everyone seemed to have a lot of fun.

On Friday, each team had five minutes to present what they accomplished and the top three teams won prizes.

This is the first such event ever held in an IBM Client Innovation Centre.  Another kudo for my team.
Lik Min and Dolika will organise Malaysia

I am very proud of my team for organising such a successful event.  So proud.  There was a lot of preparation that went in to pulling this off.

My teams in Malaysia and Poland are already organising events of their own in Q1.

Here's a short video we put together of Brno's first Agile24.
