📖 A Day in the Life of a Scrum Master w/ D’Hustle
Darwin Martinez 💆🏽♂️:
What’s up, mi familia! As the passionate Scrum Master of the application support team in my current organization, I bring a burst of enthusiasm and energy to the world of technology. Day in and day out, I showcase my Dominican flavor and love for The Culture as I lead and empower my team to achieve exceptional results! That means, if you come to one of my meetings, you better be ready to hear some music, current events, and celebrating with your peers. From start to finish, I ensure that projects run smoothly, delivering value to our clients and making a lasting impact within our organization.
I kick off my day by setting the stage for success. I lead the morning meeting, where we come together as a team to sync up our efforts and plan for the day. This is where I create an environment of open communication, encouraging everyone to share their progress, challenges, and ideas. Fostering transparency and collaboration, I enable our team to address any obstacles swiftly and efficiently.
Throughout the day, I wear many hats. I facilitate productive sprint planning sessions, working closely with product owners and stakeholders to define clear goals and prioritize tasks. I also lead enriching retrospectives, where we reflect on our achievements and identify areas for improvement. By continuously learning and adapting, we enhance our team’s performance and foster a culture of continuous improvement.
Establishing clear sprint goals and defining user stories with acceptance criteria.
Conducting daily stand-up meetings to foster communication and transparency.
Facilitating effective sprint planning and retrospective sessions.
Encouraging a culture of continuous improvement and learning.
Empowering the team and promoting self-organization.
📰 Stay Informed with Raymond… (don’t call him RayRay 🤪)
Raymond Similien 🤷🏾♂️:
What's up, tech hustlers? Today, it's Raymond, stepping in for D’Hustle to bring you the latest scoop on current events. I've got two exciting topics to cover, and I want to give a huge shoutout to the whole crew for giving me this opportunity to showcase my versatility. Let's dive right in!
First up, let's talk about a true leader in our industry who you need to know about Kelsey Hightower. If his name doesn't ring a bell, it's time to get familiar. Kelsey, Principal Engineer at Google (… or should I say, former), recently announced his retirement. This man is the epitome of what it means to be black in tech. Achieving the prestigious position of principal engineer at Google is a dream many of us have never even dared to imagine. But Kelsey has shown us that it's possible. His journey and impact in the industry have been remarkable, and I can't wait to see what he does next. Make sure to follow him and check out his impressive GitHub repository. Kelsey, you're an inspiration to us all! [tweet]
Now, let's shift gears to the technical challenges we're facing in the fast-paced world of AI. Our industry is evolving at lightning speed, and it's important to stay informed about the latest developments. From news articles highlighting the need to reduce AI's impact on the UK creating laws around AI usage, there's a lot to keep up with. I've curated a list of must-read articles that touch on different aspects of this fascinating field. Make sure to check them out and stay up to date.
That's it for this week, folks! It's been a pleasure filling in for DHustle, and please remember, don't call me Ray Ray. Catch you all next week with more exciting updates and insights.
