Everything suddenly felt light after the end of our defense. Sharing of experiences and picture taking were the highlight at that moment. But it was not yet the end of it, because our grades are yet to be announced after. That instance, the feeling of tiredness was visible on the eyes of everyone. Some tried to take a nap. Others continued chatting, while others were busy posing in front of the camera. Then finally the result was announced. It was a merry moment after hearing from our adviser that all had passed the defense. The sound of relief was very audible in the cozy room. It was a great relief, after all the numerous sleepless nights, weeks of preparation, research, documentation and some sacrifices.
However, we couldn’t have done it without our advisers – without their lectures, advices, emails, text messages and most specially support. They were the first to believe that even if we are not taking full Computer Engineering courses, still we, Passerelles Numeriques scholars can do it. For us, who works almost 5 days a week, a collaborative project to be accomplished in a month or two with scattered members seem to be impossible to accomplish.
Yet our advisers always tell us that we can do it! With proper time management, plus following the principles of Software Engineering and probably lesser TGIFs, we were able to make it. All these are because of our best advisers and instructors, Mr. Godwin S. Monserate and Mr. Gran Sabandal!
