2.6.1. some stories made no sense

2.7. how do we start tasks

2.8. how we get involved in testing

2.8.1. we need to get developers involved in testing

2.8.2. we don't have shared knowledge about how testing works

2.9. Testing is centralised

2.10. core hours could be improved

3. proposals

3.1. transparency about availabilabily

3.1.1. If possible, send an email to [email protected] when you are not available in core hours

3.1.2. If you cannot email, send a text 3 people if you cant make it

3.2. Online status for core hours

3.2.1. Hipchat should show your current availability. If you know that you will be away please leave a note in your status sometimes this will be an issue with bandwidth issues This is a duplicate of a a status note We are available by default Why make things more complex and more confused Objections Unnecessary complication

3.3. beer points

3.3.1. beer points assigned when you are late for scrum. One minute late for scrum. More than five minutes late is 2 beer points. Unless you have provided a valid reason. On the dashboards

3.4. time logging in real time

3.4.1. Jira time logging should take place in real time. Don't batch the time at the end of the day. There is a Mac app called Bee that integrates with BEE try to use it if you can. may not be able to work offline BEE is not available on windows Sometimes we have to jump around multiple tasks. It can be difficult to reliably keep track.

3.5. Acceptance criteria validation

3.5.1. Before starting a task, any developer should understand how to test the details of their tasks. The developer, product owner and tester must work together to make sure that they are building the right thing before we start. Use user flow diagrams where necessary because they help us understand the things we are testing. There will be an impact on productivity Pete will organise a workshop to teach this Do not make up the business case for the client.
