I have always wondered why all of the small studios went to coffee shops for meetings. Now, after taking such a trip I must say it an incredibly effective way to have meetings.
Unlike restaurants people do not eat which leaves a lot of space for other things and people can talk without having full mouths. Also it is better than regular pubs because (in Slovakia anyway) they are full of drunk people and loud chatter.
The best thing about this compared to a group chat is that you can tell someone about an idea and immediately visualize it either by hands or in my case a notebook (the paper one). The conversation kept flowing nicely because everyone suddenly wanted to share their various ideas and possible problems.
It is awesome to have the entire team living in the same area because it makes organizing these kinds of things is very easy.
That’s all on my part… See you soon!
