ejb review: week 3 (Jan 6 - Jan 12)

Filed under: Eric Benevides — Eric Benevides @ 4:35 a.m.

On the positive side I made it through a good portion of the Gales build process and I have been learning things along the way, which was my primary goal.

On the negative I didn't really take my Master's advice about procrastination. I ignored my laziness signal and didn't really start the build/install until Friday night, and as such I have neither the install done nor the install report complete. There have been no real problems that have left me stumped, I just have been making a point to look things up that I don't quite understand (which are a lot of things) as I go through. This has been great and enjoyable and I'm making progress, but I obviously should have just started earlier so I would have had that extra time for spillover.

My main takeaway from this failure to meet my deadline is that I did not break my planned work up into time-manageable chunks beforehand. This, specifically, is something I will need to make sure I do for this next week.

Moving into week 4 I am going to need to get the Penance article 2 out, followed by mp-wp-bot testing. For week 5 I am slated for take 2 of my attempt to deliver a working bot and backlogs to MP. If there is time left over that week I will pick up this Gales install once again.

  2. Did you update Robinson on the new deadline re Gales install?

    Break it into small steps indeed, don't leave it for last either + double your estimates on new/unknown stuff anyway.
