What x Why
Stand-ups are one of the most fundamental parts of agile development. Think of a stand-up as an opportunity to huddle with your team in order to stay informed and connected throughout a sprint.
We will work on our ability to contribute to and report out of daily stand-up meetings in Mod 4. This exercise will give you a jumpstart on other new hires when you begin your first job out of Turing!
Questions to Ask/Answer (Pick One!)
- Work Status: Is anything getting in the way of finishing the work as expected? If so:
- Who can you ask for help?
- What is your follow up plan for this contact?
- Community Status: What wins and/or appreciations do you have since our last meeting?
- Job Status: Where have you applied? What’s the job hunting looking like?
- Personal Status: How are you feeling? Why?
- Green: I’m feeling great!
- Yellow: Meh. I’m doing OK.
- Red: I’m not feeling great right now and could use some support.
