Working in distributed teams

We are learning to work differently

  • No daily stand-ups, just unblocking meetings – so that people with different schedules can be flexible
  • Do short demo videos (< 3 mins) instead of meeting face to share and do them frequently – high fidelity info
  • 1 weekly demo – realtime meeting – where we sync up where everyone is
  • push code up for reviews asap to get feedback and for others to jump in to help – see the code before having synchronous meetings
  • add automated tests with every PR – hold up the bar
  • design artifacts, comment first before meeting. – participation and engagement
