Reflection 5/03/17

  1. While working on our “TutorDex” website, I had to ask for help when I couldn’t get one of the buttons beside the answers. I also needed help making the words horizontal instead of vertical. I also needed help on using flexbox because I was confused on how to use it.
  2. I don’t think there was ever a time where I had to deal with a difficult colleague. Most of the people in our group agreed with each other most of the time and no one really argued about anything.
  3. A major obstacle that I encountered while working on my project was that I didn’t get the notice that we had to use flexbox instead of margin or float. I was only told about it right when I was almost finish with the css. I was stressed that I had to change most of the css especially because I don’t really know how to use flexbox that well.
  4. I think the time when I wasn’t communicating well enough was when I needed help on using flexbox. I was embarrassed how behind I was in the project and I didn’t want anyone to stop working to help me. I was too shy to ask anyone for help so I just had to research on my own on how to use flexbox. I’m kind of getting there but I’m learning really slow since I’m kind of doing a trial and error with what type of flex to use.

5. Think about a situation when you made a poor decision or did something that just didn’t turn out right. What happened?

Since I didn’t know how to use flexbox, I thought I could just use margins instead. But, that was a poor decision since a few weeks later, I was told that we had to use flexbox and not margins. So, I had to change most of the css and try to learn how to use flexbox as fast as I could. 
Another bad decision that I made was to not work on the project at home especially since I was behind by a lot. I was always relying on myself to finish it at school but I never have enough time. So this weekend I’m actually going to work on most of it and try to finish the css by Monday.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
