From Ryan Brissette, of the Extreme Blue Almaden HOMERx project team
Week 2 is just ending... So far it has been a rough 2 weeks, but nothing the team couldn't handle. Day 1 was fun, just the standard orientation deal with tours and team-building exercises. Day 2 and 3 were spent in a rush because all the teams were expected to make a 4 minute presentation on their projects for day 4, but we didn't have the vaguest idea of what our project was going to be when we arrived. Fortunately we were able to come up with a good project and the presentation went smoothly. We also lost our MBA intern after work on Thursday so he could finish up classes. We are looking forward to his return on the 19th.
Week 2 was full of meetings and coding. I was glad to get a start on the project. It is now the end of week 2 and we have a good code base developing and a completely fleshed out idea of the final direction of the project. Hopefully the rest of the summer continues to go as well as the past 2 weeks.
