The team, Developer Productivity, focuses on ways to improve the Azure experience for developers around the world. They are no strangers to the challenges that come with coordinating schedules and sprints with members spread globally, which became the inspiration for their latest project, Team Retrospectives. During the 2018 Hackathon, several team members got together with others from around the company with the idea of building a better solution to handling retrospectives for global teams. The early prototype was successful and gained the recognition needed for the team to invest several months to develop a more complete project. Over the past few months, they have driven a great deal of functionality and quality into the concept, integrated it with a familiar DevOps experience, and are now ready to share it with the rest of the community.
