Hello and Welcome back to Benderson’s Blog! This is the final sprint review blog I will have for this semester as our project is coming to a close and so is my college career at Worcester State. This was the 6th sprint that we did for the semester and it was probably the more relaxed one out of all of them. This was because we were basically done with everything that we needed to do for the project and were working on things for the project that weren’t mandatory but would be nice to have. For example, Nick was working on this weight counter for the food pantry that would keep track of their inventory weight for them but it wasn’t required and we didn’t get it done because it was too much work for the end of the semester but it was fine. For the rest of the group, Andy was still finishing up the Foodkeeper API, making sure it was running correctly and there were no errors. Johnny, Nate and I were working hard on the power point that we needed to make for our final presentation on what we did the whole semester in our groups. We got up to 31 slides in the end and divided up the power point among the members. We present on May 9th and I’m excited to see how our class takes our project, it has been a long time coming for everyone to see what we have been up to.
Our power point has a wide range of topics covered in it, starting from the beginning with our first meeting with each other and discussing the ideas that we had to proceed with the project. Then we go on to talk about our first meeting with Serena, a worker at the food pantry that got us on the right track on how things should be done for the food pantry intake form and other aspects of the food pantry that we were working on. Then we go on to talk about the different epics, stories and tasks we worked on for the project. Nick is going to talk about all the tasks he added to the intake form, Nate is going to talk about the CSS side of the intake form, Johnny is going to talk about the server/database he made for the information so it can be stored and lastly Andy is going to talk about the Foodkeeper API and how it works as well. Then at the end we have what we struggled with and our sources that we used for the project.
Other than all that stuff we worked on, I would like to reflect on this semester for this class I took to end my senior year of college. This class was fun to work in groups and get an actual project done for a client like it usually is in the real world in actual real jobs. Some things that I wish I did better were take more responsibility within the team, I feel like I didn’t do as big as tasks as my team members but on my future teams I will make sure that I volunteer and take more big roles and fill those shoes that I need to fill to make my team respect me and put me on later, higher projects. Thank you for joining me on Benderson’s blog, this was a great experience and can’t wait to update you on my future.
