Sprint Schedule

What is a Sprint?

In Scrum, an agile methodology of software development, a sprint is a set period of time during which specific work takes place. Tasks and goals for the sprint are identified in a planning meeting that precedes the sprint. At the end of the sprint, the team meets to review the success of the sprint and identify lessons for the next sprint. See the Sprint Breakdown for the general timeline of the work expected from both Technology Services and campus offices and individuals (i.e., "Clients") involved in each sprint.

Current Sprint Details
