Half way mark..

September 23, 2011

The half way mark for 3216 is just around the corner, and I think I’ve come a long way.. From knowing nothing about html or php or sql at the start, then to being in-charge of the server side in my first project and to being singly in-charge of the rest api and all the backend logic in the html5 project, I think I’ve learnt a lot.

I usually am a lone bird, and believe in doing things alone. I think the reason I usually preferred to doing stuff alone was because of the fear of me screwing up others work or of others screwing up my work.  I don’t know why, but this had sort of become my obsession from childhood, to try to do everything single-handedly. Even in my other “group projects”, I always preferred doing my part of the work alone. But 3216 sort of forced me to do the opposite, and  the earlier perception of mine did change a bit after these 2 months. I’ve now stopped over thinking too much about burden and my ethics and other stuff, and have started enjoying shared pain. There is just so much to learn from people around me, technically and psychologically, and with the ever looming deadlines, I really couldn’t afford being a lone bird and I do enjoy this change in me.

As our team embarks upon this quest of crossing our final hurdle tonight, I would just like to say one thing to the other teams, the race is ON guys and we won’t give up easy! All the best guys!
