To start our fourth sprint we divided the NGPOC-185 issue into distinct parts so that everyone on our team could dig their hands into the issue. We broke the task into six parts and everyone picked a piece they thought they would do best. I was going to take everyone’s individual piece and combine them into the final solution. Unfortunately, we were mistaken. Our solution was incorrect because our approach was all wrong. Over Spring Break one of the members of our group determined that the solution was much more simple than what we were attempting. Once I returned from Spring Break, I had a chance to review his approach. Apparently we were looking at the wrong thing and once we received some clarification the solution came together in a couple of days.
With our solution complete, we determined that these issues were not as complicated as we originally thought, and broke our group into groups of three. This way we can complete twice as many issues per sprint.
