…was actually pretty good, I thought.
I have to come up with a page of things to say about ACP. This will be difficult, so I’ll simply list a few things I liked:
- Freedom to choose what I wanted to work on. I liked this for obvious reasons.
- On a related note, I appreciated that we were encouraged (if subliminally) to work on teams, as typically I don’t get to do that very much.
- I really liked how we had to present, both for code reviews and to the rest of the class. I felt like, for the presentations, a target was set and we got to show off what we did. For the code review, it’s rare that I get other people to review my code, so I thought that was very useful. Personally I wouldn’t have minded having code reviews more frequently.
And a few things I didn’t like:
- I found it a little bit demotivating that (some) other people didn’t appear to have done much. I felt like they were freeloading and wasting my time in presentations where they didn’t present anything. That said, the majority of presentations were great.
