Sprint 10 – Refinement

I have literally no idea where the last two weeks have gone. If it weren’t for Jira, I honestly wouldn’t know I’d achieved so much this sprint!  Everything is blending into a single, really long, coffee fueled day and it’s weird. Stop it.

This Is Not the Sprint You’re Looking For

This sprint hasn’t really been a sprint, more of a really long refinement and retrospective. When I  came back from Prague, Corona was starting to get more media attention with speculation of a recession so I decided it was time to start looking for work.  I spent some time getting my CV together and tying

Sprint 2 – The ummm Foundations?

Oh hey! Quick recap Hi I’m James! I’m a 34, slightly belligerent and from the UK.  Between January 2020 – April 2020, I’m building a social network!  Why?
