Something is Wrong

I've got to reflect on the things happened yesterday. I'm pretty worried about the FB app when Prof mentioned in the class that our team has got no designers or web programmers. So are Yingbo and the other two members. One senior in the class suggested that people with the foreseen picture in mind and most passionate becomes the leader. Yingbo came up with the idea and she knew most of the app we are going to build, she undoubtedly became the leader. Since we both lives in RVR, I was assigned the job of developing the pages together with her.After discussing for a short while, we immediately developed a page in the first evening.

I'm pretty free yesterday except one lecture in the afternoon and one make-up lecture in the evening. I should have developed 2-3 pages in the morning, but I didn't.  I was wasting some time on project team grouping in another hypermarket project. Though I spent half an hour studying the syntax of PHP from W3, the fact is that I did not make a single page. Yingbo and I agreed to meet each other in RVR@ 8pm. However, the hypermarket project team had a meeting after the lecture, I didn't come back until 9pm. The FB seminar group also decided to make the 3 app choices@10pm but things turned out that we went nowhere discussing online.  I just wasted one hour chatting online with the seminar members while Yingbo was trying very hard on the app page. That's so bad about me. Really need to apologize to Yingbo. This should be the first-priority thing, but I just keep on doing other stuffs! I'm free on Wednesday, hopefully I will really make a change today.

UI seems to be a core selling point for apps in evolving platforms like Facebook. Xiangyun showed us a flash page he developed before and that looked really cool. Pity thing is that we cannot set another page layer on top of the flash page. We have to bid on him for the UI design. The DB schema has already been built last weekend and Mingzhe is working on it.

  1. I'm pretty worried about the FB app when Prof mentioned in the class that our team has got no designers or web programmers.

    It's actually acceptable to get someone outside your group to draw things for you. :-)

  2. Thank you for your suggestion, Prof. Leong. We'll try to make it on our own first, at least the first version...I think our UI designer is pretty good. He has already made an animation page using JavaScript.DB has been settled. The rest are in good progress.

    May I know is it allowed to use open-source codes to implement some functionalities like Autocomplete?

InnovFest 2015

I attended the innovFest 2015 event. It was quite eye opening. Besides the booth, some topics in the forums also interested me. The first topic I joined was the Kopi Chat with Yossi Vardi, a famous Israeli entrepreneur and investor. He is straightforward and humorous. When talking about the most important reason why people wake up with a great idea but ended up sleeping without executing anything, he collected answers from the audiences. One answer pretty much fitted his appetite-- "People fear about losing faces". He shared his opinion with the quotes from Theodore Roosevelt, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually st

Thoughts

I've been working as a project manager on an interesting project named " Dadafish " for quite some time. The intention is to create a sharing economy platform for lifestyle teaching/learning. Put in a more straightforward way, an Airbnb for classes. There is one assumption:  People are willing to pay to learn skills from amateur or semi-pros at a lower price. Quite some ongoing arts classes in meetups are taught in cafe shops at 15-50SGD/session. It's an indirect validation of our assumption. There are also many free language classes in meetups and facebook groups. We did an experiment to validate the assumption by introducing a Japanese friend who's organizing a free meetup to teach Japanese. She doesn't have a certificate and she's currently teaching Japanese in meetups for free. The experiment class was charged at 15 SGD/h per person for a 3-4 pax group class. We posted the class and teacher info in a NUS student/alumni SNS group and three peopl

Consistency Matters

I didn't post anything last week, which means consistency has been broken. There's a need to reflect the task management skills, otherwise I'm very likely to driving the wrong road Priority changes. A good exercise would be to list the priorities down everyday and assign reasonable time to the tasks. Then never second-doubt. 100% focusing on the task when doing it. Priority changes from time to time.  Human minds are single-threaded, thus, we'll need to keep focused when doing one particular task. Be Grateful. I received the confirmation from NOC Israel that I got admitted by the programme and I'm heading to Israel next Jan:-) Thanks a lot for Prof.Ben and Karl's help. Ultimately, it might be a plan from God. Thanks every one. The additional interview from Google went well, however, I didn't get the winter intern opportunity this time. Though it's a bit too greedy to ask for too much, I still feel a bit sad after informed that I didn't get th
