F.A.Q

I would like to work on assignments by myself. Is that OK?

No.

Can I switch team later?

No.

What should we do if team member does is not going to finish his/her task on time?

Scrum Master is ultimately responsible for making sure each team member finishes their task on time. If a team member is not working on their task, someone else must pick up that task. You must notify your TA during assignment grading about the team member who failed to work on their task. If the issue is not brought up during grading, we will assume everyone contributed to the assignment and equal grade is given out to each team member.

I am looking for co-op or full-time job. Is it OK for me not to work on assignment and let my team members do all the work?

No. Each team member must have equal contribution for each assignment. If Scrum Master raises an issue with the TA about a team member not finishing their task, that person will not get any points for that assignment.

Should we run the application in just one person’s AWS/Github/TravisCI?

No. Each and every team member must have a fully functional development environment. Your TA will ask all team members to demo a given assignment from their environment.
