Although development is a team effort, the actual act of programming is solitary. Regular weekly meetings are the best way to keep team feeling alive, bring everyone up to date, discuss current problems, and review progress. It's also a good time to discuss the wider picture. Weekly meetings are an ideal opportunity for developers to ask questions and for project managers to make everyone aware of what else is at stake.
Meetings are best held first thing on Monday mornings. The team will be fresh from the weekend and have had time to reflect on the previous week's accomplishments.
