Part of the power in a retrospective for software development is acknowledging what you are doing well while seeing where there is room for growth. We invested a good part of January as a team doing exactly that, figuring out ways to improve our processes, projects, team and company as a whole while building on what we already value and do every day. Here are some of the highlights of 2014 and where we are headed for 2015. It is looking bright, indeed.
