4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Because we can only use spare time to go for interview, and our time is fire fighters’ break. To disturb their resting many times, we thank them here. They take the security of the CangXi people, we see their hard training and frequent task, many times we wouldn’t meet them. In several times’ interview, they were out of task. Some tasks warrior brothers can not be convenient with us, so first-hand information we only got from them. After the text and images taken back in collection, it needs to put them into web page, which is a big problem for us. Most of our teammates were novices in making web pages, so its was quite frustration for us to lay out the webpage. We could only improve by trial and error. Thanks teacher Xu, she teaches us how to make webpage Thanks teacher Deng, she teaches us how to edit image with Photoshop In the process of the late creation, they were always our strong technical support until we finally completed the task.
