Retrieved from SIS IS480 Website: http://blue.smu.edu.sg/IS480/2012-2013/Objective.html
My greatest takeaway from this IS480 website is to learn how to manage a real-world IT project. Having past experiences in managing student projects, events and non-profit related activities (i.e. youth camps), I wish to gain specific skill sets from the IS 480 project:
I intend to hone my skills through the privilege of being selected by my team to manage the project. Also, I want to ensure that my team members are able to meet their learning outcomes through the IS 480 project.
Objective for myself in this IS480 project
This is my first time working with a real client with regards to a project and this experience is something that i will not get in other modules.
This project that i will look back,remember and tell my children that the time and effort spent on the project was justifiable and not full of regrets.
We should enjoy the whole process of doing this project as we are creating something that will benefit people.
This is where we can tap into each other strengths and weaknesses and to form what is called box.us
I wish to experience real project interaction with real business clients, in a larger team. I have experiences in working IT projects during my work outside, but usually I'm always managing in a small team of 3. Having a larger team, I hope to learn how we can pull our complimenting strengths in a project and catch up with our weaknesses, to produce an awesome result altogether.
Technically wise, my expertise lies with PHP and HTML web apps, and also with Wordpress CMS. I also wish to learn more technical skills like developing mobile apps and/or try out various tech tools out there to increase efficiency of coding.
