You are required to form a project work group with one other fellow student. That is, all groups must be of size two. The groups should stay the same throughout the semester.
Once you have formed your group, please send me one email message per group containing a list of both group members with their departmental Linux user IDs.
For most subsequent projects, there will be one submission and consequently one grade per group.
For effective collaboration, it is highly recommended that you create a private Bitbucket repository. You can use this through the command line, file explorer, or development environment. This is well documented on the Bitbucket site itself.
This is a good opportunity to become familiar with the way professional developers collaborate. There will be an initial learning curve but this reduces the need to meet in person and avoids the mess of sending around attachments. In addition, you can simply add me to your repository to submit or obtain help from me instead of submitting through Blackboard.
For certain light-weight collaboration tasks, you can also use Gist.
