Getting started

Time to get started on the final project. Bat a few ideas around with your friends. Ask other people in the class, with the class forum.

Someone might steal my idea.

It's OK if ideas are similar. The final projects won't be identical, by the time you actually make pages with different bits and pieces.

Exercise

Final project ideas

List at least three ideas for your final project. Each idea should have a name, a short description, and a quick list of pages.

If you are doing your projects with another person, you can do this exercise with them, too.

Include your name(s). Identify the idea you most want to do.

Do not do a website for a business, or other real organization. Their requirements might not match those of the course. If you want to do a prototype of a real site, that's OK. It will let you test ideas.

Here's an example:

Sample

If we're working with someone else, should we both submit it?

Yes, submit individually, to keep things easy. This is just an exercise, not a project. For the projects, you do one submission for both.

Up next

Let's see how the web works. The basics, anyway.
