Comments on Release 1Kim Stafford
1. Things I have learnt by doing this unit
• The project has provided invaluable experience with working in a team environment. It is a test of one’s professionalism to sensibly discuss any difficulties or grievances within the team. At the same time I felt help was always available from fellow team members if difficulties arose.
• The experience of dealing with a real world client made me feel that the software we were designing was going to be genuinely useful to the client, and a high level of appreciation has been shown for our efforts.
2. Interesting problems I have overcome
• Even though there are some disagreements during the project process it was important to treat fellow team members with respect and a high level of professionalism.
• Combining all of our individual efforts for particular parts of the project, such as documentation, prototyping and coding, was challenging.
• The task of problem solving various issues which arose during the design stage / release 1.3. How doing the course has been useful for my future
• The experience gained from working with a real world client, on a genuine piece of software which would continue to be utilised in future was rewarding .I'm now one step closer to finishing the Bachelor of Computing degree!
4. What I learnt about team work
• To solve problems professionally as a team, then get on with the task at hand.
• Creates a better environment to work in. A team has greater potential for reaching goals, as opposed to an individual working on their own.
5. Constructive advice for future students
• Choose a project which will allow you to work to your strengths, and one in which you are genuinely interested.
• Always discuss any problems you encounter, be it project related or personal, with your team members and/or coordinator.
