Project Milestone 2
DUE: Wednesday, April 18 at noon
For all remaining milestones, even though TAs will be grading and giving you feedback during different in-class sessions, everyone's write-up is still due at the same time. You may continue to update your project's code after the due date, but make sure to turn in the write-up by each due date.
For this milestone, you will need to turn in storyboards and “paper” prototypes for your initial project idea to get feedback on them. It is similar to the storyboarding/prototyping milestone in COGS120/CSE170. For a review of storyboards and paper prototypes, see these lecture slides.
(You can work on the storyboards and paper prototypes independently; this means that you don't necessarily need to match up 1 storyboard with 1 prototype. Feel free to make 2 prototypes that correspond to 1 storyboard, or even make your prototypes different from your storyboard ideas.)
In COGS120/CSE170, we were strict about having you hand-draw storyboards and paper prototypes with thick markers, but here we will not be as strict. You can use whatever tools you want to make these drawings, either on paper or digital. If you like using mockup sketching tools such as Balsamiq, InVision, or even PowerPoint, go for it! Or if you prefer to draw on paper and take pictures to upload for your milestone, that's fine too. Just make sure it's clearly readable.
What to turn in
By the due date, you should have created a
You can use as many images as you need in order to convey the necessary info to your TA; for instance, each prototype should probably have a separate image for every webpage/screen in your app.
Store your images in your GitHub repository and then embed those
Finally, fill out a teammate assessment form to reflect on the work that your team has been doing so far.
Your TA will grade your milestone in class during your assigned grading day, so plan to come to class then to present your prototypes. If you do not come to class that day, then your milestone will not be graded.
