So it’s spring break now. I’ve got one week off. Except I don’t really have this week off: I have a week’s worth of homework due as soon as spring term starts. That’s senior project for you.
My group’s app (OutdoorZ), though we are making progress with it, clearly will not have all the features we initially dreamed up for it. This is expected: things often take longer than anticipated, especially for a group of students like us who initially did not even have any experience with the programming language (C#) and tools (Microsoft Visual Studio/ASP.net/MVC 5). We always knew we wouldn’t be able to implement every desired feature.
My individual app (ScriptDragon) is similarly evolving: as I realize that some ideas can’t realistically be done, I find myself thinking up other features that might be more realistic – only to later eliminate those features. And so on. I am not at all disappointed by this; in fact I think my program now, even in its unfinished state, is in a way better than what I initially imagined.
