Final Projects

The material covered in CS132 culminates in a final project, where students work in groups to implement a web application for a client over the course of the semester. Groups typically include four persons with a mixture of designers and programmers appropriate to the project. Projects start a week or two into the semester and continue throughout, with various milestones and reports. The bulk of the design of the project will be done by the end of March, with mostof the project coding being done in April. Projects are due in early May.
