Capstone Computing Project

Demo Presentations Schedule

The schedule of the presentations is shown below. Please be there at the beginning of your time slot and stay for the duration. With everyone taking 5-10minutes it should not take more than 2 hours.

I note that there are a few more people than will fit in the room on Friday (I think it fits 60ish). So if anyone wants to move away from Friday, that would be good.

Presentation Times Preferences Form

Please fill out the form below to let me know which of the 3 time slots your team can do the prototype presentation. Only 1 person from each team needs to submit the form, of course. The whole team must be there so pick a time that works for all. Please submit your times by Wednesday December 5 so I can post schedules on Thursday.

Learning Together

I want to encourage teams working on the same platform to help each other out. You can post your questions right here in our 490Fall18 GitHub team. Or, if you want your own discussion I can create separate teams for topics. For example, I have already created a few GitHub teams for frameworks (Unity, django, etc) and invited the teams to those. Now that we have a Capstone Lab you can use it to setup times to discuss/learn about your framework with other teams. Anyway, please let me know how we can help! If you are stuck, as for help. Do it now.

If you want to, you can narrate a short youtube video demo of your email and email the TAs your video before the M3 deadline of Sunday midnight.

Meeting Times Posted

By now all of you should have received email invites for our bi-weekly appointment. You can also search my calendar for your repo name if you forget when your team meeting will be. Everyone received one of the times they requested, so all should be happy. All meetings are in my office (Storey 2231). Note that there are no meetings the week of Thanksgiving and after that week the meetings get shifted by a week.

Meeting Times Poll

Please fill out the form below by the end of Friday September 7 and tell me all the times your team (all of you) can meet with me. That is, first you meet as a team and decide which times work for all of you, then one of you submits the form.

The meetings are 30 minutes, in my office, and will start on the following Monday. We meet every other week. Please tell me your repo name before filling out this form.

Client Project Assignments

Below you will find the people assigned to each of the chosen client projects. 43 students received their 1st choice, 24 their 2nd choice, 8 their 3rd, no one their 4th, and 1 very unlucky student received their 5th choice.

Please email everyone in your team, contact your client, and start work on Milestone 1. Also, remember to watch all the lectures.
