Agile Transformation: Work Practices Differences Part 1

Typing “Agile Development” into Google search brings up 123,000,000 results. Sift through the first 5 pages, spend 3.5 hours reading through webpages that all seem to be the exact same copy of each other with cosmetic edits, or worse, websites that say the exact opposite, and be nowhere nearer to understanding what an agile transformation is. Been there done that.

A 5,000 Word (AKA 5-photo) Recap of the Image Processing Python Workshop by Women Who Code

Everyone knows about Photoshop but how many knows what goes on behind the scenes? Women Who Code Singapore hosted a 2-part workshop last month at Titansoft, to introduce the basic ins and outs of Image Processing (using computer algorithms to process digital images) using the Python programming language. Part 1 was a class on the theory of image processing, while Part 2’s hands-on workshop gave junior developers a try at picking up a few tricks.

We thought about writing a 500 word recap on the workshop, but decided to go with the other option – what better way to recap a workshop on Image Processing, than with a photo blog post? After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. So cliché but so true. 😉
