The final presentations and demos will be held on the Storey Innovation Center (same building my office is) in room 1400
on the following time slots:
- April 30, 1:00 pm -- 4:00 pm
- May 1, 9am -- noon
- May 1, 1pm -- 4pm
Every team member must take part in the presentation/demo. Everyone must stay for the duration of all the presentations in the time slot they are presenting. You can take turns, or alternate, as you see fit. Make sure every one of you says his or her name before speaking (for the first time) so I know who is who.
The complete presentation must be no longer than 15 minutes, shoot for somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes.
Bring your own laptop, phone, whatever you need for the demo and presentation. Amoco hall has HDMI and VGA inputs.
The points you have to cover:
- Introduce your team
- Explain the problem your client wanted you to solve (second most important part)
- Explain the problem they have, or the problem your team decided to address. Use examples. Remember that we know nothing about your client or your problem. It is common to assume that because you have spent 9 months on this that the rest of the world knows everything about it too.
- Describe how they do things now, without your app.
- Specify the goals of your app. Which user pain points are you addressing?
- Mention the technologies you used in building and deploying your app.
- Give some details into how they fit together
- Any technologies that did not work out? or worked out very well? give a quick explanation
- Demo (most important part)
- Show the major features.
- If possible, have an ongoing story for the user(s): why is he using your app?
- Make sure you explain what you are doing as you tap on buttons
- Make sure we can see what you are doing, and the results
Optional: If there is a particular technology or technique you can spend some time discussing it: how to use it, how it saved you time, etc. This would be like a very short tech talk. Alternatively, maybe it is a technology you would not recommend. Do this only if you find that there is not enough to talk about given the above points.
