Disciplinary Process for Non-Performing Team Members. Another link to the process mentioned in the syllabus.
If you don't do your job in the real world, you get fired. Simple as that. The CS Capstone course enforces this reality by allowing teams to "fire" non-performing team members as a last resort, after going through the formal disciplinary process outlined here. Fired team members receive an "F" for the course and are barred from further participation with the team. This should never ever happen...but, regrettably, it sometimes does come to this...

Useful Products/Tools:

  • Proxysource, a very functional and free UML editor
  • ArgoUML, another open-source UML editor project. Notes: Cool features Java: runs on Win and Linux, current version (2/2002) a little bit unstable, Java slow one some machines
