Hi! We are toucans-team-03 from Chingu voyage 13. This blog post is about our very first meeting.

Agenda of the meeting

  • Deciding a project we want to work on
  • Setting up a weekly meeting time
  • Tasks for each member

Deciding our project

After sharing our project preferences and skill set, we have decided to build a Momentum Clone using a tech stack includes CSS, HTML, VanillaJavaScript, GitHub and ZenHub.

Ideas of features are consolidated into a “MVP”(Minimum Viable Product) list and a “Nice to have” list as below:

“MVP” list

  • Users can enter 1 to 3 M.I.T(Most Important Tasks) for the day.
  • Users will be greeted based on the time of the day.
  • Users can see the current time.

“Nice to have” list

  • Healthy habit reminder/Pomodoro
  • Words of encouragement
  • Query background photos

We will first focus on our “MVP” list to deliver our MVP.

Role and Tasks for each member

Everybody will be creating sketches for the MVP project and also for the project with additional features, Rafael D. Hernandez will then create our wireframe based on the sketches. After that, tasks will be assigned to each member.

Rafael D. Hernandez (Tech Lead) will also be in charge of managing the ZenHub board as he is the most experienced person on the team.

Zaynaib Giwa(Project Manager) will make sure everything is on track by managing the backlog and setting up deadlines.

Sophia Li will be working on writing “team norms” which is a list of behaviors on how we as a team have decided to work, whereas I will be in charge of writing this blog post down to keep everybody on the same page.

For better efficiency

We set up a fixed weekly meeting time as well as a discord office hour. In addition to that, we decided to take turns hosting the meeting and writing a voyage log blog post to ensure everything is clear to everyone. Every documentation is stored in a shared google folder.
