Whether you're a customer, developer, or manager on Turtle, you'll take part in weekly demos. The purpose of a demo is to get an update on progress, remove blockers, and ensure that next steps are clear.

Structure:
Max 30 min, once per week, over Turtle's integrated Zoom video calls.

Here's how the 30 m (0:00-0:30) should go

Budget review [0:00-0:05]

  • Share your screen on zoom and open up the Budget Page in app.turtle.ai 
  • Explain how much time was spent last week
  • Ask the customer if they are ok with that spend for the week

What got done? [0:05-0:15]

  • Ask the customer & developer if there are any blockers. If there are, open the floor to resolve the blockers.
  • Ask each developer to share their screen and show what got done since the last demo.

Tips:
If there are more than 3 developers on a team, keep it to a max of 3 presenters it can fit in 10m.

If too much time is being spent on details, ask others to move those points to  to Turtle Chat.

What's next? [0:15-0:25]

  • Share your screen on zoom and open up the Tasks Page in app.turtle.ai 
  • Ensure the tasks that are prioritized for the coming week are under the Active section
  • If the tasks for the week aren't fully estimated, as developer(s) to estimate them
  • Confirm with developer "how many hours do you have available to work this week?"

Clean up the task list [0:25-0:30]

For the last part of the call, developers or a manager should screenshare Turtle and organize the task list based on what was covered in the demo.

Be as clear as possible but a rough draft is better than nothing. 

This part of the meeting is critical, as it's a visual and explicit summary of everyone being on the same page for the next week ahead.
