Hi Louis, Nice to meet your Team. Can you introduce Team Phoenix?
Hi, thanks for having us. The team consists of four University of Canterbury computer science students – myself, Janina (pronounced ‘Yanina’), Yugan, and Stephen.

We started off with some roles, and I guess I was titled ‘Project Manager’, but it really is a community process. We know our strengths and weaknesses, and we play to them.

Our Academic Mentor is Warwick Irwin, who specialises in software engineering and crazy ideas.

Our Industry Mentor is Mike Darton, who is a contractor for Clarus and works with Microsoft technologies.

We’ve also had help from Carl Cerecke, who is a vehicle routing expert working for Telogis.

Here are some details about the software:

今天看了一篇很不错的评论文章, 觉得非常有意思,推荐给大家看看 🙂

“我觉得中国的初级程序员,都是刚毕业的学生,论能力,实在不值 500(元),应该不给钱,给个实习机会就行。可是现在这群人的道德水准,破坏了企业的信心,企业知道实习生最后不会留下来,只是当一个跳板,所以,不愿 意再给学生实习机会。现在的大学简直不堪入目,老师上课,学生不听课,来不了几个人,学生的任务就是花父母的血汗钱,谈恋爱,玩,实在不成样子……

补:cnBeta的评论也是亮点之一 😉
