Web Application Competition – NCC

From Web Dev Group Leader Justin Kratzer:

Attention all AITP members, there is a Web Application Development competition for next years conference, and I’m looking for a team ASAP! This is a Five Phase Project and it’s starting now, I’m attaching the link to this post at the very bottom, before committing to join the team please read over it fully.

I will be heading a team, there is no limit to how many can be on a team, but I’m capping it at 6-8. The only rule is you cannot be a professional web developer. Phase I is client identification and problem statement work up. Due Oct 11th. If you’re seriously interested please email me at jkratzer@spsu.edu immediately.I need a diverse team who can work together well, so if you’re not a team player, this isn’t going to be your thing.

Ideally, teams will need all members to be versed in all areas of web application development. But for my team I’d like someone who specializes in Databases, someone who specializes with networks, and a Java nerd (my team is using Java, it’s just easier that way.) We will be turning over the finished product to a real life non-profit organization afterwards, so it needs to be real quality work, and obviously, this is great experience for a resume.

Guys, keep in mind, you’re free to make your own teams, I’m just hoping I get 4 or 5 of you guys for my own, I’ve got experience doing this kind of thing, and it definitely takes a team to produce. There is no reason we couldn’t win this.

September Meeting

Our next official meeting will be September 18 at 7:30pm in J161, which is another opportunity to join. Alex Oliveri, VP of Operations at BravePoint will be our guest speaker. BravePoint has been providing professional services successfully for over 20 years. This presentation describes the important “soft” skills that are important to be a successful IT consultant.

We hope to see everyone at the next meeting!
