Description of the 4 Presentations
First presentation 5 minute talk + 5 minute Questions and Answer (Q&A)
Describe your project: its requirements and your analysis. This presentation should have a maximum of 4-5 slides. Remember, you are talking for only 5 minutes. The slides should be keyword or bullet-based. You may also use diagrams or pictures. Your slides must be on your website. If you don't have a website yet, contact our webmasterASAP.
Second presentation 5 minute talk + 5 minute prototype demo + 5 minute Q&A
Give a brief introduction to your project to remind us of what it's all about. The major thrust of this talk is on the OOA/HLD and OOD/LLD. You should talk to diagrams of the HLD and LLD. Particular emphasis should be given to the OOA/HLD in terms of class and object definitions and their relationships to one another. Flow charts are not enough. Logical systems should be broken down into constituent parts and explained in terms of objects. You should also include a prototype demo. With a GUI-oriented project, the prototype is usually a skeleton. The prototype will vary from project to project.
Third Presentation 5 minute talk + 5 minute demo + 5 minute Q&A
Give a brief introduction to your project to remind us of what it's all about. The third term mostly concerns implementation, therefore the third talk should discuss your implementation. Also explain the design decisions you had to make and explain why you made them. Discuss the changes you had to make to your UIS, OOA, and OOD based on your experiences doing the coding. Explain how you organised your code, and your approach to implementation overall. This is a good time to also list the tools and languages that you used. You must also give a demo, similar to the last talk, but it should not be a prototype anymore: it should work!
Final Presentation 5 minute talk + 5 minute demo + 5 minute Q&A
Give a brief introduction to your project to remind us of what it's all about. This presentation must cover the entire spectrum of the project. Walk us through the entire project, from requirements, analysis, interface, design, implementation, but spend roughly half of the talk discussing the test issues and results. You may also want to show what your User's Guide looks like, but please don't read it out. Give a demo of the final product.
