Final Project

By now, you should have submitted your proposal to your TA/moderator and gotten approval to begin development. For each of the weeks, you will be graded on the usual style and participation components and if you accomplished the tasks that you said you would for that week in your proposal. For each week, please commit to subversion in a folder called FinalX where X is 0, 1, 2, or 3 depending on the week (CS majors almost always count from zero).

Due Dates:

  • Week 0 – 10 November 2011 @ 10:00 AM CST
  • Week 1 – 17 November 2011 @ 10:00 AM CST
  • Week 2 – 28 November 2011 @ 12:00 AM CST
  • Week 3 – 1 December 2011 @ 10:00 AM CST
We realize that week 3 is over Thanksgiving vacation. That being said, you can scale back the work you commit to in your project plan for that week. Also, the due date for that week is push to Midnight Monday morning so that if you are without Internet access during vacation, you can commit once you get back on campus.

The will be no discussion section on December 8th and 9th due to reading day and the start of final exams, but we will have lecture on December 5th. This class period will be dedicated to showing off some of the best final projects, so please plan to attend and volunteer to share what you have done.

As stated on the Syllabus page, none of the final project weeks can be dropped.


We will use the standard Grading rubric for each week of the final project.
