Agile Atheist (AA): "Who says we do sprints"
SCM: "So when do you release working software?"
AA: "As often as possible"
AA: "Whenever we get new information"
AA: "Which 1?"
SCM: "The one you should have every sprint if you actually did them!"
AA: "We schedule 1when we feel the need which isn't very often since we retro every standup, every story refinement, every architectural discussion"
There is a reason the retrospective is important in agile practices. It allows reflection and improvement actions. Why relegate it to a stale 1hr meeting once a sprint?
