After a cup of coffee, you and your team have your daily standup. Julia excitedly tells about her work on the visual design of the new login page. You and Jaime are pair programming together on a story to log in with a social media account. After some puzzling and writing new code, you confirm that it’s finished, after which the functionality goes into production. Phew, it’s lunchtime already!
In the afternoon, it’s time for your one-on-one with Victoria. She wants to discuss some things she’d like to improve. Together, you come up with some improvement actions, and while you’re at it, you help her program her current story as well.
After that, it’s time to relax. You suggest a game of pool with some teammates. Hmm, where to shoot that 8-ball?
