Tech/Sport/Play final project reports

Post your final project report with this category (“Final Project Report”).

As explained, the chief criterion for a project report is to what extent someone else could replicate your project from your explanation.   Your report should encompass:

  • high-level description of the project (a few sentences – to a few paragraphs) explaining the purpose and rationale for the project: Why this project?
  • an explanation of how it works, using text, diagrams, photographs, video as needed.
  • a description of the project in use (i.e., from the user’s perspective), including photographs, video, text, etc.
  • links to technical details (e.g., github repository).

There’s a balance between a skimpy report that doesn’t thoroughly convey the sense of the project and a report that drowns the reader in needless detail.   It takes time and effort to strike an appropriate balance.  Mark Twain said, “I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”  Don’t fall prey to this bug: take the time to document your work so that others can enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Please post no later than Tuesday May 3.
