What I hope to learn in CS3216

Pushing myself to learn more quickly

Being accepted into this module was unexpected for me, as I didn’t consider myself an experienced developer or developer, being year 2 this semester. I was uncertain about taking it at first but even though I know it is hard what I hope will carry me through is my desire and interest to learn how to better design and build web applications. Through this module I hope I will get better at learning itself, in that I can learn to learn better and faster about designing and developing web applications.

Building something good

Despite my inexperience, I hope to become more confident in my own skills, by becoming better at my craft! Although I know the learning doesn’t end with CS3216, I hope to build a web application that I can be proud of by the end of the module. And although we will be marketing it, hopefully the usefulness of the app will show for itself.

Working with others

I believe the people taking CS3216 all bring something unique to the table and I hope we can all learn things from one another. It will be interesting to see how having non-SoC students in the course will affect the development process. Lastly I hope not just to learn from them but also to learn more about my fellow students in NUS, even though those taking the course may be from different years and faculties, I hope we can all make some friends!
