Ok well, it might be a little awkward to say that throughout my learning journey, I have never pictured myself to be the best in something. And I don't really wanna be the best. When i was little I thought I was just lazy. Later on I realized that :D I am the kind of person who does not believe in things like "sacrificing a little pleasure now in exchange for greater pleasure in the future". Ya.... nice excuse :D Anyway, it takes tremendous amount of effort to be the best in something. I always though, well, as a student, I do not have to push myself that hard, i deserve to enjoy life. So what I always do is that, i take the opportunity to know about those real awesome people, and figure out where I am lacking, then work towards them a little. Just to make sure I'm hanging fine.
I would say that is what I hope to achieve taking CS3216.
Of course if you ask every single student who has taken this module so far, they would say it is a great chance to learn about building a project, to learn about coding stuff. And it definitely is. Still, I kinda feel that :D there is really no rush to learn about teamworks and things, part of the reason is that, I always felt this kind of things come in natural. I'm an outgoing person, I don't really worry about that. Another part of the reason is that, anyway we will be taking internship and things soon, that would be a even better opportunity to learn about this kind of things.
The more important thing is, as a year 2 student, after one year of staying in SOC, I have some idea about where i am, or how good/bad i am. CS3216 is a really attractive module, there will be a lot of real awesome people joining it, it is a great opportunity to help me to place myself more accurately. And to figure out my strength and weakness.
That being said, I have a plan for myself in NUS :D First year to get all the fundamentals solid, second year to challenge myself and know where I am in NUS or to say in Singapore, third year is the year of internship and hopefully going to North America to see what people are doing over there besides drinking beer :D haha. 4th year hmm... Lets see how the first 3 years go.
Guess that is all I have to say about what i hope to achieve in CS3216
