Topic: sprint meeting


nikomatsakis (Apr 26 2019 at 17:36, on Zulip):

We had talked about organizing things into sprints -- do we maybe want to schedule some kind of sprint meeting? I feel like we should be able to avoid too many meetings for this team by and large, but maybe we want some way to plan an initial set of tasks in a centralized fashion? Not sure.

nikomatsakis (Apr 26 2019 at 17:36, on Zulip):

I'm not entirely sure if sprints are a good fit here or not, although I think maybe.

Santiago Pastorino (Apr 26 2019 at 17:37, on Zulip):

I think having a kick off meeting makes sense

Santiago Pastorino (Apr 26 2019 at 17:37, on Zulip):

we can see if that works later on

Santiago Pastorino (Apr 26 2019 at 17:38, on Zulip):

but now I think we should organize us a bit better

Iñaki Garay (Apr 26 2019 at 17:38, on Zulip):

I agree on a kick off meeting, and I guess a weekly check-in seems fine, if only to have a place were we can give visibility for wg leads on progress. I think questions can be fielded async in zulip without need for meetings

nikomatsakis (Apr 26 2019 at 17:39, on Zulip):

that all seems fine, I might not attend check-in meetings

nikomatsakis (Apr 26 2019 at 17:39, on Zulip):

or I might just skim them

nikomatsakis (Apr 26 2019 at 17:39, on Zulip):

trying to reduce my weekly commitments :)

nikomatsakis (Apr 26 2019 at 17:39, on Zulip):

(but I actually don't know that I would be needed per se)

Santiago Pastorino (Apr 26 2019 at 17:40, on Zulip):

we can start doing weekly check-ins if people want

Santiago Pastorino (Apr 26 2019 at 17:41, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis I can commit to that and you could read the backlog or I can give you a summary or something

Santiago Pastorino (Apr 26 2019 at 17:41, on Zulip):

but that would be up to the members, if you think it's a good idea let's make it happen

Iñaki Garay (May 03 2019 at 14:05, on Zulip):

@Santiago Pastorino One thing we also need to define is a schedule for the weekly spring meeting

Iñaki Garay (May 03 2019 at 14:06, on Zulip):

We didn't get to that in the kickoff

Santiago Pastorino (May 03 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

@Iñaki Garay well, I thought we didn't want to do that but I'm fine with doing so

Santiago Pastorino (May 03 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

weekly or every two weeks

Santiago Pastorino (May 03 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

/cc @WG-learning, thoughts about having weekly or every two weeks meetings?

Iñaki Garay (May 03 2019 at 14:09, on Zulip):

oh, my mistake then, I thought it was still on the table. Biweekly sounds fine.

Amanjeev Sethi (May 03 2019 at 14:11, on Zulip):

biweekly (which to me means once every two weeks lol) is what i believe would be best

Iñaki Garay (May 03 2019 at 14:14, on Zulip):

it's true, the meaning is ambiguous. let biweekly = every_two_weeks; for purposes of this discussion :p

Santiago Pastorino (May 03 2019 at 14:15, on Zulip):

hehehe as you noticed I've avoided saying biweekly for that same reason :joy:

Amanjeev Sethi (May 03 2019 at 14:15, on Zulip):

lol thanks! i have been burnt with this many times and old enough to make it as explicit as possible. :D

Iñaki Garay (May 03 2019 at 14:18, on Zulip):

the goal of having a meeting every two weeks would be solely to distribute the cognitive burden of letting wg leaders know the status of ongoing items. as we previously discussed, question answering and unblocking of individual documentation efforts is probably best done async in dedicated topics.

Santiago Pastorino (May 03 2019 at 14:20, on Zulip):

cool, I'm going to talk with @nikomatsakis about it and add something to the calendar if you find it useful then

Iñaki Garay (May 03 2019 at 14:21, on Zulip):

sounds good. to clarify, I think this makes sense to avoid you guys having to remember who is doing what and pinging to ask. if you come to the conclusion that it's not that big of a burden, at least for now, then no meetings is fine with me

lokalmatador (May 03 2019 at 16:32, on Zulip):

maybe to get things organized weekly meetings would help, but later on depending on how it develops we can switch to bi-weekly?
