Holoseat: PY18 Sprint 4 Planning

Retrospective

What went well?

  • Sprint was going well (good pace and on target) until the last 3 weeks

What did not go well?

  • The last 3 weeks things almost came to a grinding halt (external issues overcame both J and Bryan)
  • Really concerned about all things communications (blog posts are still infrequent and we need to get the comms plan done!)

Note: we are very close to the SyndCon prep sprint

What can we do better?

  • Be ruthless about prioritizing tasks while we are ultra-bandwidth limited (highest priority is to ship the alphas)
