Event Storming Shopping List

Useful Books (not mandatory, but it can't hurt to have copies to pass around)

Shopping List

To put the list into context, here's the sort of artifact we'll be creating in class:

We need:

  • Many black sharpie-style markers (e.g. https://amzn.to/2OAfR6F)
  • A roll of 3-foot (1M) wide white craft paper, at least 100 feet (30M) long (e.g. https://amzn.to/2pj9CsE). If the class is large or you intend to actually continue with what you learn in class in your actual work, get a longer roll and a dispenser: https://amzn.to/2NSRUu9 and https://amzn.to/2MKufHx.
  • Scissors to cut the craft paper.
  • Masking tape to attach the craft paper to the wall (https://amzn.to/2MRwWwl or equivalent)
  • Standard 3/4-inch (19mm) "Scotch Tape" to use if sticky-note adhesive fails.
  • One roll of 1/8" (or 3mm) masking tape for creating re-positionable lines on the drawing (e.g. https://amzn.to/2KiZInx).
  • Several pads of post-it notes (3 x 3in, 76 x 76mm) in each of the following colors. The "super sticky" variety is required. The colors are not accidental. We'll need one pad of each color for each breakout group of 6-8 people.
