CS 318: Final Presentation

Your final in this course is to finalize your project, reflect on it, and present a demonstration of your work during the final week of class. We will not meet during the final exam period.

Task 1: Present

During the final week of class, give a 6- to 8-minute presentation of your site. To receive credit for the prototype 2 milestone, your site must located at https://USERNAME.github.io/cs318/prototype2/index.html. Your peers and instructor will evaluate your presentation on these criteria:

  • the client and the client’s needs are clearly described
  • the purpose and interesting features of the core pages are discussed
  • the content is presented professionally
  • the speaker communicates with eye contact and clear language
  • the presentation uses the time effectively (don’t be less than 6 minutes, don’t be more than 8)

In general, you should style your presentation as if you were being considered for employment by a company composed of your classmates. You are demonstrating your portfolio to us. Tell us a story about your experience building a site for your client. Share your struggles and victories.

Task 2: Finalize

Copy your prototype2 folder to a folder named final in your GitHub project. Make any changes based on the feedback received during your final presentation.

Present this final version to your client and get feedback as soon as possible.

Task 3: Reflect

Prepare a one- or two-page reflection that answers the following questions:

  1. What did you do to address the comments given during the final presentation?
  2. What would you do differently if given a similar task of building a website in the future?
  3. What will you take away from this course? What have you learned? Negative takeaways are welcomed. (A healthy human possesses a mix of emotions.)
  4. What feedback did you get from your client on the final version?

Turn an electronic copy of this reflection in via email or Slack, or slide a paper copy under your instructor’s door. This must be turned in by 3 PM on Friday, May 18. Earlier is welcomed.
