The Agile Malaysia meetup group received a surprised invite from Joseph Chee about an Agile Lean Conference happening up north in Penang on the 23rd July last year. Not much details were initially forthcoming except we knew there would be a few external speakers – Michael James (Collabnet), Nagendra Kumar (McAfee) and Evan Leybourn – and a number of internal speakers from Intel all set for this event.

Most of you would have heard of Robin Sharma. Many would have read one or two of his books. Thru one of my Facebook contacts’ sharing, I stumbled upon one of his many inspiring articles; this seems the most relevant given we are just kicking off this brand new year and everyone’s busy making resolutions to make this their best year!
My question to you: why not think bigger and make resolutions to make yours a GREAT LIFE? 😛
Allow me to share Robin’s 60 Tips for a Stunningly Great Life with you. A simple checklist of 60 things that Robin believes if we practice them every day, will help us on your way to making our life a great life!
Agile Malaysia (Facebook) is a meetup group started by Andy Kelk back in 2011 (when he was at iProperty). It went through a hiatus in 2012 until I met up with Andy to discuss about kickstarting this meetup group again.
Our rationale and purpose behind reactivating this group is simple; as proponents of the Agile (& Lean) movement as the approach to build high performing software development team, both of us understood in order to have a talent pool of Agile developers in the local market (and to grow this talent pool), we first have to start a community of practice of likeminded individuals to engage in a process of collective sharing & learning of each other’s experience along the AGILE journey.
