The Stand Up Meeting

By: Aya Raafat

Everyday when I start my working day, I've a call for a stand up meeting .. what ever we do.. this gives the team members a push to commit to some tasks for the day to finish it by the end of it.
 Every morning, gather the development team in the same area. That area could be a hallway, a meeting room or whatever space is available for standing. No chairs allowed.

The meeting should be over in under 10-15 minutes. The agenda is : 
  • What I Accomplished Yesterday
  • What I plan to accomplish today
  • What issues are blocking progress

For an enterprise, Cloud Computing removes the burden of constructing its IT infrastructure by depending on a third-party service provider that owns and manages the enterprise resources and allowing the enterprise users to access these resources on the Internet.
