TA Office Hours
Tong Zhao will be holding office hours next week on Monday (6 May),
Wednesday (8 May), and Friday (10 May) in GDC 1.302 from 1 pm to

demonstrate the finished version of your app. This private
demonstration must be done before your presentation on Monday,

You will get ~10 minutes to present your app and you will take 2 to
3 questions at the end of your presentation. Your presentation
will describe the app, what technical features that you have
incorporated, and a demonstration of the app. We expect that you
will have slides or handouts for your presentation. The judging
criterion will be the professional manner in which you make your
presentation. All members of the group must speak.
You must review at least 3 apps developed by your class mates. You
can solicit your class mates to review your app either through Piazza
or in person during class time. Here are some questions that you
might want to answer in your review:
Your review must be constructive. Collect all three reviews and send
them to me and Tong in a single text file. Please do not send
separate files. You may also want to send your review to the group
whose app it was.
