We still like each other! (no small feat based on some other teams hehe)
Can't speak much about working together just yet, but I am enjoying getting to see everyone's faces and knowing people just a bit better (Pam)
Cooperation with WMDE going well, thanks to Ramsey/Lydia cooperation I imagine
I think everyone is learning from each other well and efficiently
I really appreciate when Pam says she has nothing to say because I know she is paying attention. :) lollllll - yay!
What in the team's process could be improved?
I (Matthias) took too long to start reviewing SVG patch (I was in no rush with Cormac on vacation, but only got to it once he was back already)
With the recent rash of absences, I wonder if there is a more formal way we can handle absence-related gaps in our capacity (not sure if CR was a problem, but maybe addressing serious concerns in production that arise during a vacation is not super clear)
I have no suggestions yet
Standup meetings are a chain instead of individual, so one has to accept or decline for each day rather than each recurring instance. Not a problem if you go to all standups, but folks like Scrum Masters don't because they have other friends. Suggestion: Have Eng-Admin separate the meetings into their own recurring instances, instead of 4.
