I'm so, so tired of stand-ups. We have JIRA, and basically all we do is read the board—ticket number, ETA, blockers. We've done some Slack stand-ups, but my managers insist we all be in the room to communicate the same shit we communicate very effectively on Slack.

    How long do they take?

    @Gauthier half hour. I think it's mostly the time. It's the first thing we do and there's a hustle and bustle to get into work (NYC transit isn't nice at all), but the expectation is that everyone's there on the minute. I can leave my apartment a whole half hour earlier than projected by Google Maps/another navigation app, and have to sweat to get into the meeting, and 100% of the time, the meeting can be covered remotely, but that's frowned upon.

    @spockthompsonjr I guess that stand ups are really important for your managers, but maybe you could talk with them about scheduling stand up a bit later in a day, so you don't need to get up so early to be on time?
    You're not wotking remotely, do you?

    So you still need to commute to work, the only problem is that stand up is too early? Really, talk with your managers/team/scrum master or whoever is responsible for this and explain that it's highly inconvienient (did I spelled that right?) to be on time to early.
