The last team I worked in, mainly of senior developers, ditched sprints in favour of continuously implementing the backlog and used a shared doc instead of status meetings. We met briefly on zoom 2-3 times a week to discuss blockers etc. and very occasionally to do a retro. Nice.

I should add that the team was distributed across Europe and the US.

@underlap i never actually did sprints. kanboard is nice software though.

@underlap async collab is the future...I say that as someone who's studying "remote work models" for a company, yet ironically am much more productive in Discord with peeps across ~22 time zones.

@mushambo Sometimes there are fewer obstacles to collaborating with someone in another company than with someone in your own company. I guess it's about alignment of goals.
