BREAKDOWN OF WORK TO BE COMPLETED THIS YEAR

Haiving set out my brief which may change slightly i sent it to my mentor in Sony John Dwyer and he said that i need to breakdown and set my self a schedule to follow so that i dont start lagging behind with my workload. So see below to how he told me to set it out it may help everyone else to do the same, just a suggestion. At the end of the breakdown i sent it to John and he seemed very pleased with it so ive added he response as well :)

Excellent Steve. This is exactly what we would give to our Dev manager who would Excel it up into a doc and keep track of progress.I would suggest that you hand this onto your Tutor with your Brief and then keep tabs of it yourself on a wall chart. Its really good to do it that way as its very visible and you can chart your progress and see how well you are doing. Great work.

Again, nice one Ste. I agree with John's comments and what you've written falls nicely into Wednesday's lecture/exercises.

C'mon the rest of you, lets see you also using the blog. Don't be shy.
