Daily stand-ups are (often) a waste of time

One of my earliest memories of my first year a the university was the myth of software development. The influence of movies, books, and articles about how working in software was different than any other job, created the excitement of what was coming after graduating: working back to back with each other, discussing the schedule, and planning each sprint. One activity fascinated me the most: daily stand-ups. A 15-minute long moment that brings the team together to learn what everyone is working on.
