Currently the Alfa Capstone team is nearing the end of the Design phase and is about to enter the Build phase and start coding. We are very excited with this transition. We worked with our client closely to develop a thorough design for our system, which will allow us to have a smoother development process. Alfa has also helped the team to overcome the steep learning curve with Java J2EE framework by providing training on coding and documentation standards. Again we are very excited to have hands on experience with system development.
Some challenges the Alfa Capstone team faced came from development environment setup process. Most members on the team are unfamiliar with DB2, but we utilized this learning opportunity to help us grow professionally. Along with getting the DB ready for development the team also set up the Eclipse environment and has been working to become familiar with the tool over the past few weeks.
Thus far, we have been very successful in overcoming our challenges. We will continue to work hard and take on more exciting challenge in the future.
