  • Posted to Premortem: Prevent Failures by Recognizing Patterns, in reply to Andrew C , Feb 14, 2018

    YES! Retros are important for quickly identifying issues that have already cropped up.

    Premortems help you envision a world where the project turned into a dumpster fire. What you come up with during a premortem helps ease conversations when trouble rears its head.

    For instance, in the premortem, we identified one possible problem as "Cadillac taste on a Chevy budget". During the project, the client started to demand custom work that was not in the scope. When talking with the client we reminded them that failure by running out of money is something that we'd like to avoid.

    On the flipside, what else can you say when you have 100s (1000s?) of folks asking?

    I'm chomping at the bit to get access but I'm cool with waiting.

    I signed up immediately upon announcement.

    Pinged our InVision rep to see if I could get moved up the queue. (No meaningful response.)

    Have not heard anything yet.

    Have not seen anyone other than big names with access.

    A fork of Normalize that was a PostCSS plugin that took in config from autoprefixer and output only the needed reset would be a great next step.

    While the new "A" mark is a nice graphic, it is generic. Any company could use a graphic A. Using the Greek God Atlas provided something a bit more concrete, something that Atlassian could "own".

    1. The language that you already know.
    2. If nothing satisfies #1, then use PHP.
