Week 3: How did we choose the class project

Last class it was in some way interesting class. I was interesting because of the big discussion about what FOSS projects could be chosen for our class to work thru whole semester. I was from the start of the class but I had to live early. I was when the interested projects got listed on blackboard until when almost it did start the voting. The class was almost in different groups about each project. The projects which wherein lists are:

  1. Firefox
  2. Irrlicht
  3. Eucalyptus
  4. Libre Office
  5. Sage
  6. VLC

After I did leave the class, students did start to communicate in IRC channel. I was not there to take part on the discussion at IRC channel but our professor did posted the IRC discussion. From the IRC meeting logs I did learned what of the projects got chosen and how. The project that got chosen for the CS 401 class to work on is Eucalyptus and the second on list it was Irrlicht. Also, our professor did give to us all some of the assignments to do for this week, for example:

  1. Play with Amazon EC2 or ECC
  2. Get ECC accounts.
  3. Read http://open.eucalyptus.com/wiki/EucalyptusNetworkConfiguration_v2.0
  4. Decide who is on infrastructure team
  5. Contact IT about configuring network port for off-campus access
  6. Subscribe to eucalyptus listserv
  7. start haunting #eucalyptus channel

It is going to be very busy this week. I hope that it will be fun and we learn some good stuff from it.
