During today's class, we were given an overview of what to expect over the next 8 weeks. We are told that though we have the best teachers and learning materials, we will still be required to put in lots of efforts. We were given a group assignment to come up with the task list of building a basic online recruiting website, and the team went in deep discussions about priorities in terms of "must have", "should have", "could have", and "nice to have" levels.
As I have previously run a startup in the online recruitment space, I was able to contribute actively to the discussion.
I learned about basic project brainstorming process and how to come up with tasks. I have also completed the assignment, learning how "forking" and "pull requests" work.
I will further contribute to group discussions and brainstorming sessions tomorrow.
