We now have our first official team exercise under our belts, and it went really well. To be honest, I’m not sure if any other group had nearly as much fun as my group did with creating/coding the project.
Our task was to come up with a fake online company that sold either real or fake products, and then utilize all of the skills we have learned thus far to complete the project. My group mates and I came up with a company called “The Brocery Store,” which sold your typical “bro” items, such as Hoverboards and vape pens.
We designed and coded 6 pages for the site; 4 of which we worked on individually, and two which we all had contributions to. I really enjoyed this project for multiple reasons. First of all, it allowed me to further hone some HTML, CSS, and JS skills. Also, it allowed us to really work as a group for the first time, where we all contributed to one final product. In the past, it always seemed like I got grouped together with people that didn’t want to be there, and half-assed their way through the exercise. But with this, everyone was highly motivated to do their best, and worked to their full potential. It was quite refreshing.
So, all-in-all, I had a great first experience working on a group project, and I look forward to opportunities to do more of them!
