→Succeeding in SPO600
There are three keys to success in this course:
Work ''in'' the open source community.''' The projects we will be doing are too large and too unfamiliar for you to succeed entirely on your own. You will need to use the community's knowledge, connections, and resources to succeed well. Respect the community 's standards, tell the community what you're doing, ask when you have a question, and pull your own weight within the community.
. '''Blog.''' Tell your professor, your colleagues, the community, and everyone else what you're doing. <u>Write a lot</u> and write well, include good technical content, and incorporate links to all relevant resources and the product of your work, and write often. Almost all of your work in this course is submitted by blogging. 3. '''Be ambitious.''' In this course, you will need to be the driving force behind your project. The community will help you, but it's up to you to supply the energy.
'''It's best to plan to make a bit of progress each day.'''
