To engage with the Switchboard team:
We are in the process of adapting to use the Product Development Flow
Our preference is to work asynchronously, within our project issue tracker as described in the project management section.
The team does have a set of regular synchronous calls:
Switchboard Sync- During this call, we are sharing important information for team-members day-to-day, as well as project items requiring a sync discussion
Impromptu Zoom meetings for discussing Switchboard work between individuals are created as needed. It is expected that these meetings are private streamed, or recorded(1*), and then uploaded to GitLab Unfiltered playlist. The outcome of the call is shared in a persistent location (Slack is not persistent). This is especially important as the team grows, because any decisions that are made in the early stage have will be questioned in the later stages when the team is larger.
1* Exceptions to the recording rule are: 1-1 calls, discussions around non-project work, and in cases where parties do not feel comfortable with recording or we cannot record due to the nature of content discussed. However, even with the exceptions, outcome of project related discussions need to be logged in a persistent location, such as the main issue tracker.
