Most Disastrous Group Projects

Most Disastrous Group Projects
Here's a funny "man on the street" video we produced for Cisco​ Spark (no relation). At the CalHacks hackathon at UC Berkeley we asked students about their most disastrous group projects. Watch the video for tales of people sleeping on the job, trying to do too much, and having too much confidence. You'll want to watch just to see a pompous​ student get knocked down a peg or two.
