A quick snap of our 2nd Agile Sprint

Our mentor has been teaching us how to use Agile to its fullest so we can make the most of our time in the office.
We’ve been using the poker cards to number each ‘story’ (the descriptions on the white cards) and break up the stories into smaller tasks.
When we complete all of the sub-tasks of a story, in the next mornings meeting we can move it to the finished section and reflect this update on the ‘burndown’ chart.
Right now we have an impediment with Unity and Perforce (the Version Control software that we are using). There is a plugin that we used to use with Unity 4, it would allow us to make updates/commits within Unity and have no issues merging scenes. The plugin only recently became available for Unity 5, but it’s buggy. We’re in the middle of working through this with their support so we’re using their visual client for the time being, which is great but less time efficient than the plugin.
Back to Agile – it’s great. When you have those days of being unfocused, all you need to do is take a look at the wall to see where you’re up to and keep going. No one wants to reach the end of a sprint with nothing to show!
