In practice, it is actually very rare for you to start a project from scratch, as you are doing in this class. Usually you add code to an existing project.
We also happen to have a few projects from last year that got some traction. The clients are using them, or need just a few more features/bugfixes done before they can use them. Below are the ones that want help at this point. This list will be updated as new requests come in.
- Project Crystal Blue and its iOS app (video). This is a Mac OSX application and companion iOS application used by Dr. Barbeau, a geologist, to keep track of rock samples. You can view the list of requested features and bugfixes, which I have added as separate Issues.
- CapstoneConnect is a Laravel PHP website which is being used by Dr. Dale McCants in Mechanical Engineering. Here are some of his requests.
- SCChildcare is an Android app tht shows childcare centers of South Carolina in a map, along with official ratings. The one current issue is that it does not work with the latest (well, as of the Summer) Android version.
I am looking for people willing to put in some time to help these projects. If you do, this will help your grade, a lot. Also, I will write a very nice recommendation and LinkedIn Endorsement for you if your changes work. Contact me if you want to help.
