With many software companies employing agile methods and striving for near continuous deployment, software developers report feeling there is no time to celebrate accomplishments - something that used to be accomplished by large release parties. Now, when one iteration ends, the next begins. This research project will investigate ways to bring back the feeling of celebration to software and further develop a proof-of-concept web application.
Outcome: An understanding on why developers feel they are missing celebrations and what can be done to mitigate this. An updated proof-of-concept web application that addresses some of these items.
Research component: investigating preferred ways to track / celebrate accomplishments and validating the usefulness of a tool that implements these features.
