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. A sprint begins with a planning meeting, where tasks and goals for the sprint are identified. At the end of the sprint, the team meets to review the success of the sprint and identify lessons for the next sprint.
