I'm a computer science student in Montreal, QC. My big passion in life is computers and more recently programming. For the last three years I have been learning programming especially the .net languages : VB.net and C#. I also dabble in Python, Java, Javascript and C++. I like helping people in need when I can provide answers. Knowledge related to computers is knowledge I'm interested in getting.

comment What is the best way to lead a team of 4-5 students for a summer project?
Mm, thanks for reminding me of that principle @thedaian. I agree, adding more people to the boat would only add complexity if the project isn't wide enough for people to fit it. I'll try to think of something. And no, no artists or anything else than programmers. Too bad really, we'll think of something.

I wish they would teach us something else than code at my school, thats why I'm going for with this summer project. This gives us a chance to learn something by ourselves so we are ready when we hit the market. My entire programming student career I've had to educate myself with Google, so very lucky to have programmers.stackexchange at hand.

Thanks for the tips. I'm hoping I can get them to put enough energy into this project so it materializes into something. I don't see this project as something "oh so very important" as such I don't expect my friends to devote all their time to it. I just figured we could meet a few times weekly to update everyone else on our advancements. I find the idea fun because 4 people can accomplish way more than I could alone. That means a (let's assume) finished game could be made, would look great in a resume.

By team leader I mean more like someone who pushes and organizes people during the project. My friends, by themselves, won't start projects by themselves so my task is to get everyone together and coordinate our project. Like setting goals, mentoring people if they need, determine what we should orient our efforts toward, etc. I'm not trying to be some kind of "boss" here, I won't stop anyone from doing what they want during the summer but from what I understand someone needs to be there to make sure our project happens and doesn't just stay on paper.
