HW4: Team up and Setup Project Website

Deadline: due Wednesday (Sept 20, 2017) at 11.59pm, upload here

Deliverables:
  • upload name of your team member to gradebook, if you work alone enter your own name
  • upload link to your project website to gradebook, use our template file for the content
Questions?
  • post on piazza
  • go to a TA office hour for building/coding oriented questions (tbd)
  • go to an instructor office hour for logistical questions and grading (mondays, 4-5pm, 32-211)
  • do not send us emails


Task:
Select a team member for your open ended project (1-2 students). If you work alone, upload your own name. We recommend teaming up: You can learn from each other, can motivate and support each other, and you will have more money for doing your project (we give every student $50).

In addition, please setup your project website using the template we have prepare for you here. You can use any webspace you like. We recommend using the MIT webspace. Please change the text with the Team Member names, but the rest can stay as it is for now.
