3. YOUR PROJECT
3.1 PROJECT SET UP
Prior to the project beginning you must submit the following information via the PROJECT SET UP
form on the DLE. To complete the form you need to provide each of the following:
• Project vision: What is your project about? Why are you doing the project? Spend
approximately 500 words describing to your potential supervisor what you intend to do.
Focus on the problem being solved, not the technology you intend to use to solve it.
• Keywords: These keywords must represent the essence of your project. They will be used
to allocate you to a supervisor who is most relevant.
• Risk Plan: Consider here the things you think might go wrong with the project. You should
consider how likely the risk might be and the impact. Any risk that has a high impact and a
high probability MUST be dealt with.
In addition to submitting the information above, you must set up and use industry standard tools for
developing and managing a project. This comprises of a private GitHub repository and a Trello
• Students can apply for the Student Developer Pack – https://education.github.com/pack You
are expected to add your supervisor to your repository and to edit the readme.md file so that
your project vision, allocated supervisor and creative common license are clearly shown.
• Students can sign up for Trello – https://trello.com/signup if you don’t already have an
account. You must set up a Trello account and invite your supervisor. The Trello board link
should be clearly displayed on your GitHub readme.md file.
3.2 TRELLO DELIVERABLES
At the start of the semester you are expected to have developed your initial product backlog which
should be displayed on the trello board. https://www.scrum.org/resources/what-is-a-product-backlog
Throughout the semester you should be applying Kanban principles whereby you have a “work in
progress” column and a “done” column. As the project progresses you should submit screenshots of
your trello board clearly showing what work is in progress, what work has been done and what is left
on the backlog.
For the first four weeks of the semester you are expected to meet in small groups weekly with your
supervisor at a time determined by your supervisor. After that, meetings will take place every
fortnight. Your uploaded trello screenshot will provide a basis for your discussions with your
supervisor where you will discuss what you have achieved to date, what you are working on and
what barriers you have faced. They will form part of your evidence for your sprint planning and
These interim deliverables are mandatory. Failure to submit will result in attendance monitoring
letters being send out and probable failure of the project.
3.3 FINAL REPORT
Your report will document your project products and the processes that supported the
development. This is a substantial piece of writing that should be drafted, redrafted and worked
on over a period of time – not left until the last minute. The word count is expected to be
approximately 10,000 words. Further guidance on the report will be provided in a separate
Failure to attend the project demonstration will result in a mark of zero for your project. Further
guidance on the demonstration will be provided in a separate document.
