Retrospectives are the ideal time to remind the team about specific practices.
In our last retrospective, I tried to find out if we were building up technical debt.
By holding a poll, the results would show us if we took enough time to refactor.
Every team member graded the code health on a scale from 0 to 5. Zero being dramatic, five being perfect code.
This was the result:
The team responded that five is impossible to achieve, but we that it should always be our ambition.
We concluded that 4 was a great score and that we took enough time to refactor.
Keep up the good work, guys! We’ll do the poll again in a couple of weeks.
