This paper describes a global software development project undertaken in an educational setting with students from Senegal, India and the US. Similar initiatives have been carried out for five years at Pace University, but it was the first time that it adopted Agile Methodologies and Scrum for the development of a mobile application. Another novel aspect was that developers were distributed across three locations. The experience was considered as an inspiring self-knowing process by all the student participants. This paper presents the perspective of one of students involved in the project. It gathers observations and analyzes the educational value of “Knowing Yourself and Beyond” based on the accomplished collaborative work and interviews with student developers and professors. The relevant lessons learned from this project are summarized and recommendations for students are provided.
