MSc Group Project

This is the summer group project where you work with a number of fellow students building an application for an external client

We will assign you to a team and a client project for the summer

Past teams have worked with Survival International, Grampian Fire and Rescue, local volunteer groups, and an Edinburgh film company, and a Scottish game company.

The better prepared you are, then the better you will do on the project.

Important Points to Note

Kickoff Sessions

The project starts with an important project kickoff  sessions May 14-18 in Meston 311 where you meet your team and client, as well as learn more of the processes you will use. You must be here for this for maximum benefit to yourself and your team. Read official Scrum Guide  and watch some of the Scrum Training Series after you finish exams so that you're ready. You'll find other items to read on the Information page.

Set up laptop

Decide whether you want to be able to run your development environment when disconnected from the internet, or if you want to rely upon Cloud 9. If you want to have everything runnable from your machine, then find someone else who's done this, or let me know and we'll set up a session to do it together.
