We are 5 developers and a product owner working on a social VR application designed for software developer teams in distributed settings.
Driven by the impact of the Covid19 pandemic, we at codecentric want to meet at least once a day for a couple of minutes in a more personal way than Zoom. We strongly believe that social VR applications are a great way and much more personal than video conferences – the best choice in times of social distancing.
Currently, our Daily Scrum meetings are in Zoom, sharing the JIRA Taskboard. If we want to make a VR meeting efficient, we need our JIRA Taskboard in VR so we can update and comment development tasks during the Standup meeting.
Apart from working on the board, we also want to make the Daily Standup as much fun as possible, so we chose the metaphor of a strategic planning table with building blocks representing the JIRA issues. Just like the „Battle of Winterfell“ in Game of Thrones:
We are working on it since begin of last year in our 20% time (1 day per week) and are already as far as having a working APK for Oculus Quest ready. We would love to find people who think this is a good idea and are willing to give us feedback - may it be here in a discussion thread or even as pre-alpha testers.
I am not sure if it is a good idea to start a thread like this here in the Atlassian Community, but it is currently the only way I can see to figure out if what we are building is only relevant to us or if there are more people out there who are interested.
Here's a short demo on YouTube (very early pre-alpha).
Update 25. Jan: now we have real data from our JIRA project!
Update 7. May: now we can write back to JIRA and added a bit of eye-candy
Update 9. June: our JIRA was migrated from Server to Data Center. Thanks to our middleware we could fix our connection in only 4 hours!
Update 7. Dec 2021: population of subtasks and more writing updates are working now
I am looking forward to your replies and ideas!
Christian & Team
