No Guess Rx was a solution me and my classmates Chris Hummel, Terry Hurst, and Craig Kestechur worked on for our capstone project in our Information Systems Integration class. The goal of No Guess Rx was to develop an application that provided a quick easy way to find the cheapest prescription drugs in a particular area. We wanted to focus this project on helping those who are uninsured by providing them with a way to find the best price.
Through this project, I am learning a lot about what its like to be a part of a real IT project team. Everyone has a different role in the project and everyone has expectations. This is very different from other group projects I have been involved in because in most other group projects there is a sense that this is for school and there are not any consequences to what happens. It has not been this way for us with No Guess Rx, and I believe the biggest reason for that is our mentor Bruce. Bruce holds everyone to a very high but reasonable standard. He asks questions that make us think and forces us to improve, and he makes us want to have the best prototype possible. This experience feels almost like foreshadowing for what lies ahead for all of us in our professional careers.
