Final project presentations will take place on Apr 11. You will have about 6 minutes each. Plan accordingly so that there is as little overhead and switching cost as possible. You will speak for 5 minutes (I'll time you) and take questions for 1 minute. The next group will set up during questions.
Your presentation should cover the following topics:
- Describe the problem you're solving
- Show the overall architecture
- Describe the primary roles.
- Discuss your data model
- Describe the main events and their attributes
- Show the event hierarchy for your system
- Methods used in constructing your solution (language, libraries, servers, etc., and their configuration).
- Analysis of why events were or were not a good solution to the problem you chose
- Screen shots, slideware, or a demo of the system to show the UI/UX.
You don't necessarily need to give the same weight to each of these. You may include other material. But you only have 5 minutes.
You should practice your presentation among your group and in front of others until you are smooth and have it down.
I will judge the presentations (which count for 35% of the grade for the lab) based on the following factors:
- Completeness (according to the list above)
- Delivery (slides, what you say, etc.)
The following is a list of the group projects I know about. If you are not represented below, let Reed know immediately. You will be asked to present in the order shown.
