We didn't have any experience of writing sites before and we really couldn't have written such a site by oneself. Some of us knew the things that other didn't, it helped us to unite our skills & knowledge to create the site. Besides, we learn different languages, that made birth to an idea of introducing texts on different languages.
The process of searching for the information to our "Today" section helped us to get to know each other better. The time spent together during the work over the project showed us the features of character of each other & we really became more experienced in communicating with different people, not only with the members of our team, but also people who helped us & those who gave us information.
If each of us some months ago had known that we would work the way we did, one would really have got surprised. We really enriched our knowledge, skills & especially outlook after working over the site. Some of us got deeper into the technical side, that seemed almost mysterious for them before. Getting acquainted with the city & its places of interest was of great value for all of us, because we had moved there only a year ago & still were fremd with it. Long excursions that we have made through Irkutsk were useful not only for our site, but for ourselves as well.
What is more, we succeeded in making other people aware of the topic through presenting our site at different contests, meetings & just to our friends. The pieces of advice from all those people who were involved in the process of building our site & getting information for it were really helpful, for they enabled our site to represent different points of view, be more informative & more interesting to get around. We can't but help mention that after fulfilling the project we are still interesting in the topic & we already have some ideas for further working over it. We have realized, that we constitute a great team & we can create some more really useful & high-level products. We're really thankful to Thinkquest, that gave us such a great possibility to know each other, get skillful in working in the team and communicating with people.
Working over it was unforgettable & we will remember it for all our lives!!!
