Virtual Stand-ups have not been running for quite some time, so these pages have been deprecated.
|Stand-ups no longer running!|
These calls have been replaced by a SCAPE developers IRC channel.
After trialling these 'stand-up' meetings, it has become clear that it was not working effectively. What we learnt:
It is still useful to encourage discussion and closer communication between developers so it is proposed to start using IRC.
We run twice-a-week 'stand-up' meetings for the developers on the SCAPE project. This idea is borrowed from the Scrum development approach, where the idea is to use very brief and very regular meetings to help ensure all the developer's know what's going on. Of course, not every developer can attend every meeting, but we encourage you to attend as many as possible as this will really help cross-work-package integration.
ALL are welcome to attend and EVERY developer/techie should try to attend at least once per week, but only developers are expected to speak (see the agenda below).
When joining the meeting, please set your user name so that the initials of your institution are included. e.g. "Andy Jackson (BL)"
The first meeting will be held on Monday the 9th of January, and will be largely dedicated to ensuring everyone can get online and join easily. Before the meeting, please use this link to check if you can use the system.
GoToMeeting is compatible with Windows, Mac, iPhone, Android: See http://support.citrixonline.com/GoToMeeting/all_files/GTM010003
First 15 mins, a strictly enforced 1-2 mins per developer (depending on number of developers present), on
- What you worked on since last meeting.
- What you're working on next.
- Anything you are stuck on.
Any issues that come up will be parked, and should be followed up offline. For example, if someone is stuck on something and you can help, you should contact the person directly, outside the meeting. If you don't know how to contact them, ask the Technical Coordinator or whoever ran the meeting.
The remaining, optional 15 mins give the participants time to discuss any issues arising, if they so wish.
