What is a Sprint?
John Spacey, updated on January 15, 2023
A sprint is a short timeboxed development cycle that produces working code that is potentially shippable. This is associated with agile methodologies such as scrum. A sprint begins with a sprint planning meeting that moves items from the product backlog to a sprint backlog. Such items might include user stories, bugs, non-functional requirements, knowledge acquisition and prototypes. Items are estimated and the sprint backlog designed to be completable within the sprint at a sustainable pace of work. Each day of the sprint, a daily scrum meeting is held to quickly review progress. In many cases, progress is tracked with a burndown chart. As the sprint is timeboxed, any uncompleted items at the end of the sprint are moved back into the product backlog.
