Use VS Code ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ˜† to check in with yourself

Even before the prevalence of hybrid and distributed-first working, the regular standup meeting has established itself as the pulse that keeps our teams moving. The name โ€œstandupโ€ is an artifact from the intentional activity of conducting the team meeting while standing together.

If you want to skip ahead please install this free extension to enable VS Code to regularly apprise you of progress.

If you don't regularly attend team meetings such as standups, checking in with yourself regularly is still useful. It will help you understand if your efforts are helping to achieve your goals and enable you to identify distractions.

Let VS Code do the heavy lifting ๐Ÿฆพ for you

These days, itโ€™s safe to say that most of us (accelerated by this global pandemic) are joining standups sitting in a chair from the comfort of our home via Zoom. What weโ€™ve come up with is basically a way for VS Code to automate your standup contributions. Right from within VS Code.

Stateful Standup CLI

Check out the stateful CLI ๐Ÿ’ป for your terminal

If you are a native of terminal. We've got you covered, too. You should give the standup CLI a spin. Install instructions for both CLI and the VS Code extension are available here.

Stateful Standup CLI

Give us a shout ๐Ÿ“ฎ

We intentional decided to release Stateful early to get your feedback. Please donโ€™t hesitate. The good, the bad, and, of course, the funny. Email us at hello@stateful.com, leave a comment, or find us on Twitter at @statefulhq.

Cheers,
Sebastian
