So each student on the team has a few extra responsibilities this semester. In particular, a student will be responsible each week for collecting / hounding down status reports and posting them on this blog at least 24 hours before the weekly IRC meeting. Another student will be responsible each week for taking the meeting transcripts and turning them into nice, summarized posts which will also be posted here.
Here is an example of a status report post – notice how short and punchy each status report is. They get right to the point: Current Status, Next Steps, Roadblocks, Questions. Point form is fine. Again, these should be collected and posted, and then read by the team 24 hours before the IRC meeting. This way, we can answer questions in advance, and we’re all more or less on the same page when the meeting begins.
And here is an example of an IRC log summary. Again, point form is fine.
So, here’s the schedule – please note that it might be subject to change, so check back often.
