"My experience was fantastic. As a student, Activate Agile gave me perspective on what I'm learning, and why I am learning it. I also got exposed to businesses and what working in a professional team may be like. I really enjoyed the wealth of talks, but I also really liked the opportunity it gave me to speak to people with similar interests to me."
