Course Description:

Line: 18 to 18
  • Design and implement a software system to meet some need for a local organization or business. Depending on the goals of the organization, the system may be either a prototype or actually placed into production.
  • Internet of Things: A wide range of very inexpensive (<$10), wifi and bluetooth enabled boards available. These little cards (about the size of your thumbnail) can be interconnected to a wide range of inexpensive devices and sensors (Input: sense light, voltage, temperature, movement, position, humidity, etc., Output: control lights, relays, motors, etc.). These boards will have a SDK, and programs can be written for whatever purpose you wish to achieve. Example: sense the opening of a door and send an alert to email or a smart phone. A typical project would include the configuration of a small program on the device, and building a web interface to view the status and/or control the device.

  • An iPhone or Android app: This would be an opportunity to learn how to use one of the mobile platforms, or gain more experience if you have already done some mobile app programming. The specific application could be anything that interests you, as long as the scope is appropriate for the time available and your level of experience with the mobile framework.
  • Applications with a web interface are also very appropriate to gain useful experience.
  • Custom Project: If you have been thinking of a software application that would be especially interesting for you, you may propose your own idea that you would like to explore, after determination with the instructor that the goals and scope of the project are appropriate.
