Describe your typical day at work?

My typical day starts with a coffee at around 9/9:15 am. Then follows standup meeting where we talk about yesterday’s accomplishment and plan for today. Then I go back to my desk to work on the planned deliverables(design/coding). Usually i go to lunch around 1-2pm. Then off of work around 5:30. Depending on the day, we work on solving different problem as a team with some other members or teams. There are very good chances to have one or more meetings regarding design/issues/concerns etc throughout the day
