So! It's Wednesday night, and therefore it's time for a personal blog post. The most obvious thing to comment on is the huge amount of progress we've made this past week. Jhonatan emphasized becoming a "cohesive team" this week, and we're certainly well on our way. We kicked things off on Sunday going over the overall project and determining what our roles will be within this larger company product's development. The next day we were already meeting with instructors, and I was modifying the class lab code to suit our needs. It's going to be difficult to get the "prototype prototype" ready for a field test by spring break, especially because all of us have varying degrees of the relevant technical experience to execute this project, but that's our best case scenario. :-) It's good to have ambitious goals, I think. Currently Katchy is working on the specifications that will determine exactly what I make my Java app do and how Kevin structures his database. Joseph's working on the website. I think at this point I'm most fuzzy on how the website talks to the database and how my Java program talks to the database. I think I'll ask the instructors tomorrow in class.
I believe that's all for now! I'm excited. I'm going to learn so much about this particular area of CS/software engineering with which I'm very unfamiliar. And, at the same time, I get to make something that will hopefully help people!
