I've become quite intrigued by the idea of doing more organized sprints. Roughly speaking, the idea would be this:
The idea of the longer meeting is it includes time to review how things went and to decide if we want to continue pursuing the same set of goals, or something different.
We might consider doing the sprint meetings over Zoom, although I think I've found that Zulip can be surprisingly high bandwidth, and I know it's better for some folks (e.g., due to language barriers, bandwidth constraints, or other things). So I'd be game to stick with Zulip.
I feel like we already had a sort of informal "first sprint" meeting some weeks ago, can't recall the precise date. We could kind of "retcon" a sprint from that starting point. Or we could use this coming Monday to do a first sprint meeting.
( cc @WG-traits )
I think that's a great idea.
informal agile methodology could definitely help us be more efficient, I reckon. :-)
What do we think about using next Monday as first sprint meeting?
I lean that way for a few reasons:
I like that it's a long sprint. That gives me the ability to get extremely busy (because I can only do this in my spare time) and then catch up again
@nikomatsakis during the normal WG-traits meeting slot? sounds fine with me. I'll try to make it then despite the awkward time for me.
Yes, though I would be ok with moving it 1 hr later on account of DST
I at least am available
Also, I would want to go for 1hr probably (not the 30min presently in the calendar)
Hah. DST kind of made it better for me, but if others prefer 1hr later, then fine...
yeah, we'd need 1hr I think.
I'm stepping out, but I'll add a special event to the calendar when I get back
People can vote in my absence :) Do it at the normal time? (Add a :+1: here)
Or one hour later (Add a :+1: here)
Wait, is that your way of saying you don't care, @Sunjay Varma? Hehe.
Heh. Either works for me, so I thought I'd indicate that :sweat_smile:
@scalexm did you want to vote for a time? :)
@nikomatsakis I like using video conferencing; much preferable to text imo, and it gets recorded so thats better
@centril often on Monday evenings I cannot do video, so I might be unable to attend in case we do
how is Chalk integration coming along btw? can we play with it in nightly soon? :-)
Argh, I never added an event for this =)
There didn't seem to be a clear consensus emerging around the timing of the meeting
So I guess we'll just stick to what the calendar says, but run longer as needed
