This assignment helps you understand if your team is implementing something that actually makes sense and respond to early user feedback. This is an exercise often seen in industry.
We expect all CSC491/2600 students to actively participate and have thoughtful discussions. UX lessons should be watched first in order to effectively complete this assignment.
You must also create a release on your repo where the code is located. This will give us a snapshot in time and allow us to grade it. See release body criteria and example below. Assignments without a coherent release body that follow the instructions in this assignment will be rejected and marked 1 day late.
The release does not need to include pull requests or commits from every member. The body does not even need any content, just ensure it is there and appropriately labelled.
Assignments are always due at 11:59:59pm Eastern Time.
You must submit the release on the LearnSoftware application. You can find the submission location here: https://learnsoftware.engineering/my_assignments
Release bodies must include:
|UX Research||Interview the class instructor and another individual. The other individual should be someone who would use the product you are building.|
