Welcome to university group work, carry your group or fail

Fuck I'm glad to never have to do that again

>> No.47284069

This is one the reasons I never double majored in CS. There was maybe one or two decent guys that knew actual CS, but were already taking by others.
Databases was the last straw, I did the entire thing myself when there were 3 others in the same group. Fuck them.

pretty much this.

I've only ever had successfull groups with people I were friends with and knew that they were remotely competent.

All others will simply slack off once they realize that you know your shit.

Also pretty popular: I just quit the group and drop the assignmend 2 weeks before it is due and without any of my assigned work done.

Happened to me with Intro to SoftEng, 4 person project, 2 of them magically uncontactable, not picking up phone/responding to email for the week before due, didn't complete any of their assigned work, third guy doesn't speak english well enough to meaningfully contribute.

At first I thought that project was gonna be one those where I have to do everything when it seemed like they could hardly understand any English. Thank god they could write something that made sense and was actually good quality. I doubt neither of them had even left their home town before going to uni and never traveled anywhere before that exchange period. They both seemed to genuinely want to learn and do the best they can.

Besides this one project I've never had anyone deliver before deadlines either but these 2 always delivered multiple days ahead of time. I'm guessing they started working on it as soon as we got more instructions and finished it as soon as possible instead of waiting for the deadline.

>In mathematics, a group is an algebraic structure consisting of a set of elements together with an operation that combines any two elements to form a third element. The operation satisfies four conditions called the group axioms, namely closure, associativity, identity and invertibility.

>In mathematics, and more specifically in abstract algebra, the term algebraic structure generally refers to a set (called carrier set or underlying set) with one or more finitary operations defined on it.

>A set has closure under an operation if performance of that operation on members of the set always produces a member of the same set; in this case we also say that the set is closed under the operation.

>In mathematics, the associative property is a property of some binary operations. In propositional logic, associativity is a valid rule of replacement for expressions in logical proofs.
>Within an expression containing two or more occurrences in a row of the same associative operator, the order in which the operations are performed does not matter as long as the sequence of the operands is not changed.

>In mathematics, an identity element (or neutral element) is a special type of element of a set with respect to a binary operation on that set. It leaves other elements unchanged when combined with them.

>In mathematics, the Latin square property is an elementary property of all groups and the defining property of quasigroups. It states that if (G, *) is a group or quasigroup and a and b are elements of G, then there exists a unique element x in G such that a*x=b, and a unique element y of G such that y*a=b.

I'm not saying "you have to know group theory or you will never be able to write a program". The point I was trying to make is that the basics of group theory can be really useful when you're writing software.

You look at data, its shape, how it behaves (or combines) under some function. How you can transform the data into some other structure, etc.

Once you have found out some properties, you can roughly categorise the stuff you're working with and ta-da - you can magically exploit the properties of your data and operations on it. E.g. folding some computation over it, parallelising it, exception behavior, etc etc etc

To his credit, he was trying really hard. We were right next to eachother, and he was never slacking off. Which just makes it worse because I can't even throw him under the bus for not putting any work into it. He seemed like a smart guy and was trying really hard, but he just could not get it.

Up until that point, I always felt like programming was one of those things that most people regarded as some kind of arcane sorcery simply because they hadn't learned how to do it yet, but I guess there are a fair amount of people who just can't wrap their heads around it.

I hate group assignments. They always make me procrastinate and slack off.
At least when I work alone I'm entirely to blame myself if it fails and I get motivated accordingly.
Recently had to present a random paper with a random classmate. We divided it up and made some slides. I was alright during the presentation but that dude gave the worst presentation I ever saw, even holding his tablet and reading from it the entire time.
Only got a C for it, though I would have gotten a B or higher if he wasn't such an idiot.

My university is one of the top ones too, and comp sci majors who graduate from here do well. The problem is the lax entry requirements compared to the engineering program. Basically, comp sci here is seen by many as a back up plan if they don't get into the engineering discipline they want to. Pretty much all the incompetent people drop out along the way, though. So it doesn't mean much to be studying comp sci at my uni, but it means a lot if you graduated in comp sci.

We (>>47285825) have weekly meetings with the student groups where they have to present and discuss their progress on the project with their clients (i.e. us). They need to take minutes, action items for the next meetings need to be set, if the clients have a nice idea for a new feature to include they have to be able to explain if and/or why it can/can't be included and so on.

It adds a bit of overhead on their end since they have to prepare for the meetings but it helps motivate them to work regularly. Plus it's an interesting and possibly useful experience in general.

true dat. I never understood OOP. Then I started smoking dope and then it would briefly make sense.

I like the concept, but haven't found the right language. I can't program worth a shit in C++. Too many things to remember. C is elegant when you know how to use it, so I got good at it. Then I started implementing C++-style things with C structs and the like, and it was ungainly, but worked.

Education needs to be customized even if it takes more time and resources, because we are all different and learn things differently.

>If you don't like astronomy, then why take it?

Most colleges require you to take extra shit like sciences (with or w/o labs), literature, african studies, etc. It's very unusual, but they want you to be a well rounded student, so that if your CS degree doesn't directly propel you into a CS job, you always have the capability to find other work.

But really though, African studies is the most boring fucking class of all time. If it weren't full of cute black chicks with big asses, I'd have shot myself already.

This is something else we talked about.

My instructor told me that his highschool was better than most colleges. He told me how decades ago we would have finished the Latin book in one and one half semesters and now we won't even finish it in two.

If that is a difficult part of your college career, then your major is shit.

This isn't STEM elitism. An english major would still consider Calc 1 easy compared to the shit tons of writing he or she would have to do for some classes.

The problem is, Calc 1 and 2 are done in your first year, which means you've been used to jerking off in high school.
