Athens, OH 4 December 2018 –
As a computer science major, you will spend the last two semesters in a class titled Software Development I and II. In this class, you will get real hands on experience working with a client and designing and developing an application.
For my project, we selected a client based here in Athens. The client wanted a web-based application that could be used as a linking tool to connect professors and grad students with students in the local school district. This application was especially useful for me because of the technologies that we chose to use.
The technologies that we decided on are hot topics in the computer science industry. This application was more of a chat feature, where students could post the projects they were currently working on, and be linked with a expert in the field their project is associated with. Then, the student could ask questions, and gain valuable knowledge from the expert.
Of course this class is a load of fun to me, but has also gave me more hands-on experience, and has shown me exactly how the real-world will function. From working in a team, to contacting a real client, to the design, development, testing, and deployment phases, I really enjoyed this pair of classes.
