Module 3 Final Project & Portfolio Presentation

Purpose

  • Acknowledging Progress: This is an opportunity to acknowledge the progress that has been achieved over the course of the mod. The final project should demonstrate your understanding of the learning goals and how to implement them.
  • Interview Prep: The presentation of the project and the portfolio both provide students the opportunity to practice speaking technically about code implementation and decisions and work on professional storytelling.
  • Direct Feedback: Instructors will be able to provide direct feedback for the technical and professional presentations respectively. Students will be better prepared for an interview.
