      • Design plan
      • How you used open data, and which sources
      • Experiences about the platform
      • One or two things in the source code that you are most proud of and think that might be useful to others
    • Five minute demonstration of your working program
      • Proposed talk topics
      • The application flow and features
      • The user experience with the application
      • Showcase your best features and explain how they are cool or useful
    • = Total presentation time of 10 minutes
    • Finished your wiki page and linked it to this one. Use this or this as an example for your wiki page.
      • Group members
      • Idea

      • Which kind of technology, platforms, access methods you have used
      • Some explanatory charts (optionally)

  • In one week, (i.e. 7 days from from your final presentations)
    • Update your wiki page with:
      • Five page project report on the same themes as your wiki pages. Write more on these themes and also put the content back on your wiki page. Remember to address the business case!
        • Use the same criteria as in the wiki page. Use a seminar paper template. (except no literature review required here, of course)
      • One page poster about your project (see examples from previous years, also upload this poster to the wiki)
        • Make this more like an advertisement. Try to sell your idea and solution in here! Also: Try to make it so that it'd look good in your CV.
      • Project source code OR a link to your public repository (good places are Github or Bitbucket)

Discussion and the Q&A

  • See our new team platform for team status (link upcoming)


Programming experience(I hope you all have some…if not..then you'll have one during this code camp) and of course learning INTEREST is the most.

Can I prepare to Code Camp ?

Yes. During code camp week we will brainstorm a software idea, design it and code it. Getting good ideas might sometimes be hard and thinking about different ideas before code camp makes it faster to get into coding part.

I have an exam in Code Camp week ?

You are free to go exam, but code camp in intensive course and idea is to focus coding during the well, so it is recommended you prepare to exam before the code camp week. You are fully evaluated based on your working during the code camp.
