This is the guest-approval component that I have been working on with Angular material.
In the beginning of the Spring before moving entirely remote, I believe we had a good plan set in place in order to be able to accomplish all that we wanted to do. Originally, we were going to have John and I work on the WebUI together while Khoa and Tyler would be finishing up with the database and API. We were making good progress until we had to move to remote.
Once I moved to remote, I ran into many problems along the way. The transition into all online classes caused me to lose time towards all of my classes collectively. I had still been working for a majority of the time off and needed to put more time towards my classes outside of school than I had before. From there I ended up becoming overwhelmed by the work. I had to have been doing other schoolwork trying to catch up on everything I had fallen behind on. Once I started working on the approve-guest component I ran into a lot of problems. I had a functioning component before the time of going remote but once I started working on the component again, I ran into a bunch of problems. I was able to get my code to run and load in any HTML editor but once I moved it into WebStorm, there was almost always a blank page. I went through all of the dependencies, created new projects and consulted online with many different resources. I seemed to be incapable of providing what I needed to for my team at the time.
The only improvement I can say for our team is that we need to be able to discuss more of what is going on throughout the project. We will have to find a way to be able to piece together all of the pieces that we have on GitLab into one project.
I need to put all my effort into this next Sprint because it has not been fair for what I have contributed during this time. I was not as available as I should have been with my team. I also needed to be able to better communicate that I could use some help to get my component back to functional. During the next spring I plan on going above and beyond for my team as they have all been doing an incredible job with this project. I will try to have daily discussions with my team in order to ensure that I stay on track. I will also try to be more active on GitLab with such things as moving the issues to done, approving merge requests or creating new issues. Hopefully this next sprint, I will be able to better estimate how long each problem will require so I can set more time aside for each one. I look forward to making this next Spring into a fully functioning GuestApproval.
