CSC 322.01, Class 05: Team building
- Notes and news
- Upcoming work
- Extra credit
- Team building exercises
- Our goal for today is to help build teams.
- Fill out the Dudle (long u) poll. You will need help. Make sure that KY is available at a time that is good for you.
- Make an appointment to meet with your community partner. Contact
Susan Sanning if you need contact info. Plan to meet with your
community partner some time next week, if possible.
- Ideally, it’s the whole team.
- Since that’s often next-to-impossible, a part of the team is okay.
- You may use 10am-11am TuTh for the meeting time.
- If you are working on an existing project, find it in the CSC 322
organization, make a clone, and try to get it running.
- You may have to track down others to help.
- If you are working on a new project, get it set up in the CSC 322 organization. (A blank Rails thing is fine.)
Good things to do
- Rosenfield symposium, this week. (Lots of different events)
- Les Duke
- Sign up for picnic (see email)
Team Building Exercises
- Share resumes with each other (and with me and with Kathryn).
- Read each other’s resumes.
- If this was all you saw about the person, what would you expect about the person joining your team?

Sam turns mean(er).
- This person did not bring their resume to the exercise. They are never going to get work on time.
- This person used Word and doesn’t know how to align things. They are probably an IT major rather than a CS major. And they’re not even a good IT major.
- This person listed HTML as a programming language. They are an IT major, and don’t really know how to program.
- This person used the most popular LaTeX resume format. I have no idea whether or not they know LaTeX, but they are able to hack together things.
- This person did not format their stuff consistently. I will never let them touch my code.
- This person used underlines to emphasize things. They know nothing about typography.
- This person lists no technical skills on their resume. ‘nuff said.
- This person’s resume does not fit on a page.
- This person does not use grammatically correct English. (I’ll let you fill in your own implications.
- This person is an anthropologist. I wonder if they are studying us.
- This person used buzzwords that I don’t know. They are likely to be arrogant and a poor communicator.
