Goals for This Week edit

  • Sprint planning, review process

There should be a meeting where we estimate and agree on the goals for the quarter.

Agenda edit

  • Review work of previous week and demo it (10-15 min)
    • Lots of user facing improvements in MV that got finally checked in.
    • Main refactoring on MV code with deferral objects and after deployment bug fixes.
    • Launched MM vision campaign and socialize it
    • Prepared video RFC campaign
    • Prepared metrics graphs for Media Viewer performance

  • Review goals for the sprint and capacity of the team (sick days,

planned events, etc.) (5min)

    • Main theme of the sprint is going to be around finishing missing small features

and bug fixes for the MMV

    • Mark going to the dentist and working the rest of the day from home.
  • Estimate stories in the backlog proposed for this sprint, break up

into smaller parts if necessary and come up with the final list to get done in this sprint based on the estimations and capacity of the team. (30-45min)

    • We reviewed all the cards still in progress and closed the ones already resolved.
    • We reviewed most of the cards in the backlog related to MV issues, estimated them

and added them to the ready for development queue. We ended up with the following list:

This totals 14pts for the iteration, we have 4 engineers, cranking aggressively 4pts/week each for an ideal capacity of 16pts. So, it looks we may be able to finish this list. In any case, this is our first try, we will know our real velocity after 2-3 iterations.

  • Retrospective (15-30min)
  Based on previous one:
 We didn't have time for the retrospective.
