Sprint 19 – Slowly fast

Hey! how’re you? My full time job is chaotic at the moment, so whilst I have worked on SoSa this sprint, i’ve not had nearly as much time as I would have liked and decided against doing a release this sprint just to make sure i’m delivering something of value! I’ve still make great progress
