Sprint Review

Claiming Done

All PBIs for Sprint 6

Retrospective

What went well?

  • We finished all PBIs
  • External factors did not intrude
    • Part of this is Mach 30 slowed down
    • We both took time off because of the holidays
  • We planned well
  • Wrapped up v0.3 by the end of 2016

What didn't go well?

  • In some ways, we only had such a productive sprint because Mach 30 and work (for both of us) slowed down to abnormal levels

What can we do better next time?

  • Conduct planning (annual?) in a way to interleave J's commitments at Mach 30
