Milestone 11: Presentation and Demo

Demo day and Location: Final demos presentations will be on Dec 6, 7, and 8.
Grading: Team

Presentation

Presentations should be about 5 minutes, never more than 10.

Everyone in the team must attend. Not everyone has to speak (but you will next semester.)

Bring a laptop from which to show your slides and do your demo.

Bring any dongles you might need to connect your laptop to the projector. HDMI is most common.

If you have a phone app, be prepared to demo it on your emulator in your laptop. It all depends on the room we get. Some do not have the overhead projector, or sometimes it is gone.

In the presentation you will cover:

  1. Who is your client? What your app is meant to do? What problem does it solve? (1 slide)
  2. What technologies are you using? Why? (1 slide)
  3. A quick demo of what you have working so far. (0 slides)
