Undergraduate Capstone Open Source Projects

One Thumb Up, One Thumb Down

Posted by Dwight Deugo on 2009/12/03

Thumbs up: They way the students on the project came together and worked as a team, holding IRC meetings, sharing emails and conference calls.

Thumbs down: The project started off slower than expected, in part to the existing infrastructure and rules of interaction with Eclipse projects and with me becoming familiar with supervising such a unique student course experience.

  1. I agree we started slow, mainly because we needed to learn the internal of the eclipse framework but also because we didn’t had a real goal. It was our responsability to agreed on a common goal.
    It was also our responsability to set our own deadline. This was a big chalenge to do it because we needed to work as a team and we needed to know how hard it was how long it would take other to do each feature. So communication was really important and this was not easy to do over the internet. But i guess it was the educational goal of this whole project ! 🙂
