Today you have the period to: 
-brainstorm project ideas Ideas in groups 
-find a partner in class

Note that and more than one group can work on similar projects (provided they work independently)

1. One member of the group will create a project repo on github, and add the other member as a collaborator.
****If your git logs don't have you contributing from your git account, you don't get credit for the commits. So make sure you test that your commits work the right way and your names link back to your git account. 

2. The readme file will be updated constantly with:
A chronological history of 
new features
bug fixes
project milestones etc.

3a. Overall You will be given 2 weeks of homework time, about 2 weeks of class time, + 2 weekends to work on this. 
I estimate you have to put in about 17-20 hours per person on this project spread out over about 14 days.  
3b. You are ABSOLUTELY not allowed procrastinate. I will reserve 15% of your grade for: "Did you  do work over time." (Easy to get an A, if you do the work the right way!)
procrastination = 15% penalty! 
3c. This will count as 1.5 exams. 

4. You are allowed to work on the project over break, and that would lessen the amount of work you are required to do later.
