4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Time management, we students have different time schedules like in the times of practice of sports, meetings, family matters. We overcome this problem by messaging each other. So what we did is to divide the work and communicate to each other with the use of technologies. Knowledge deficit, since it is our first time to join we sometimes lack knowledge on how to do our website. But with the help of our teachers and co-students we become more interested on doing the project.
