|Activities to accomplish during the semester||This course will focus on developing a capstone project(s) and a portfolio.|
Capstone project(s): The capstone project(s) should be an interactive web site that uses a variety of languages and a variety of techniques. This should be a responsive web site that uses a variety of data sources and demonstrates the ability to develop with a variety of approches. Research should include some techniques that go beyond the material covered in the courses. The page needs to be documented.
I suggest that you develop the proposal for the semester long project(s) and meet with me or submit it. The sooner the better! As you work on the capstone project, I want a report on your status each month. By the end of April, the capstone project should be completed and you should setup a meeting where you can demo the results.
Portfolio: Develop a portfolio of your work and experience as a web site. This should be something that you can effectively use to job hunt. This is a site separate from the capstone project.
Career paper: Research programming careers and write about the requirements for the job, the functions of the job and your interest in the job. Include interviews with three people in the field.
