Presentation Schedule

As you have seen in the course schedule, the presentations of the final software design will take place on June 3rd. As we did last years, each presentation will take no more than 6 minutes, followed by a 4 minute discussion. Given this years circumstances, we have decided to do these presentations for each group separately. However, your entire group is required to be available for the discussion session. Therefore, we plan these presentations during the regular lecture hours of the course. For the presentations of your final software design, please take the following into account:

  • Pick a time slot in the table below. First come, first served.
  • Send an invitation to all your group members, as well as René van de Molengraft, Jordy Senden, Bob Hendrikx and Wouter Houtman. These mail addresses can be found at the bottom of this page. Make sure, your invitation is accompanied with a meeting room of Microsoft Teams.
  • As long as your presentation can be shared via the Teams meeting, you are free to chose the medium you like.
  • In order to not waste time, make sure all team members are present, and both microphones and cameras are tested BEFORE the start of the presentation. Make sure your microphone is muted when you are not speaking.
