Some topics discussed:
  • handling code reviews

  • discussing tradeoffs and offering solutions that can be completed faster than the ideal solution
  • balancing engineering and managing
  • making sure documentation happens

    • encouraging collaboration
    • encouraging non-work-related conversations
