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.

    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?
