sariel8292197d"hey, now that we're all done we can sit down right?" - remote manager
steev250197dMeetings are just so that the managers can feel like they're involved somehow.
lassiecoder810197dWHO THE F LOVES IT??!!! 🧐
AlgoRythm50650197dYeah I've run into this 15 minute blocker every morning actually so maybe we can work on eliminating that?
Hazarth7081197d@lassiecoder I like standups :c
- can't last more than 15 minute
- either need to be the first thing in the morning or the first thing after lunch, otherwise they force me to extra context-switch
but I find them useful sometimes, they keep me informed about the rest of my team. They are a centralized exchange of problems so people can immediately hook up from a pool of people that might be able to help and they keep me on track.
but managers, if you put your standup 1-2 hours after work starts, then I'm just not going to work! That's too little time to get anything useful done... so essentially if I come at 8 and you put daily at 10, what I really see is
[useless time][meeting][useless time][lunch][post lunch drowsiness][finally some work][end of day]
incredibly difficult to work a day when the daily is put on a stupid hour
ostream3712197dTell me about it, this morning I woke up still wasted from yesterday, I had to go for a dive in the ocean to sober up real quick before starting.
dootlurk660197dWow, I totally misinterpreted that as standup comedy. I haven't been subjected to a standup in about a year 😂
jaylord456191dOur team lead loves stand-ups. He easily quadruples it's total duration when he attends.
He's famous for it 🙈
stackodev12393180dI hate it but I need it. I’m “that guy”. I keep notes but sometimes don’t remember all of what I’m supposed to be doing from day to day unless we have a rolling standup meeting to coordinate it all.
