Last day! We had to get out of our sprint location at 13:00 so we didn’t get too much done late last evening and this morning. But still:
This is the first time I had a company-internal sprint. I’ve attended 6 or 7 python/plone/grok/django sprints, so community sprints with people from different countries and companies. Now it was a sprint with three colleagues. What do I think of it?
So: company-internal sprints are a good idea!
The house we hired (de kleine weide, B&B Dorpsstraat in Renswoude) was quite good. The number one necessity: good internet connectivity. We had better wireless than at the office :-) Quiet. Nice surroundings for a short after-lunch walk. Couple of tables for putting your laptop on. Kitchen. Only drawback: the pool table and the ping pong table in the garage were of questionable state of repair (but that’s no life necessity). And exactly the week we were there, they were renovating the supermarket in town so we had to drive over to the next town for loot :-)
At 13:00 we knocked off for the day. Beautiful weather, so I hit the bicycle paths again. 95 km (see map for the first 65 km before my iphone battery gave out). Good ending to a good week.
