What You Are Working On Now

I expect all teams to be working already on their Milestones for this semester. By the time we first meet you will have had between 1 and 3 weeks of work, depending on when we first meet. Thus, I will expect certain things to be done already:

  1. New team members should be able to pull, build, and push to the repo using their own laptops. Bring them to the meeting so you can demo this.
  2. You will have already chosen and installed a Unit testing framework, as per the testing milestone.
  3. You have posted lots of new issues, one for each new feature. Some are closed because you have implemented them. You have been coding.
  4. Everyone's personal logs are up to date.
  5. Demo, every meeting.

I expect the final product for this class to be a polished (looks professional), solid (never crashes, no workarounds), and complete (all the features, and them some) piece of software.

Meeting Times Poll

By now you should have received an email with the email address of all the members in your team, including any new members. Meet with your team and decide what times you can meet with me.

Each group, please submit the form below to let me know ALL the times your team can meet, by Wednesday, Jan 14.

Group Meetings Only, No Lectures

Just like CSCE 490, in 492 each group will meet with me in my office for our bi-weekly meeting. There are no lectures. I will be posting the survey for preferred meeting times right here, so, come back.

If you are New to Capstone: If you were not in 490 then I will be assigning you to a group. You will have a lot of catching the first month (this is why we recommend you take 490 first). Expect an email from me after the start of classes. In the meantime, learn git and github.

Please, email me your github username by Monday Jan 12 @midnight.

Remember, your grade depends on your git commit log.

Team Members Assessment

Read the team members' assessment rubric.

Fill out and submit the form below once for every team member, including yourself. That is, you will have to come back to this page and re-submit the form with your review of each team member. I will be the only one who reads these, no student will read them. Remember to also submit one review of yourself. Deadline is Wednesday, December 10 at noon.

The form is now closed.
