COMP 410 Final Presentation

The guys of COMP 410 [1] had their final presentation last Wednesday. They got some pretty tough questions, and the state of the final product was not as polished as I would have liked it to be, but I think they pulled of something interesting. This is even more true since the cloud framework they were using was brand-new, not well documented, and not at all intended for this kind of processing.

The comments were mainly about the lack of an interesting, impressive demo that actually requires the cloud and that cannot just be run on one machine. That is a very valid point, but one has to keep in mind that the class was very small, and there was quite a bit of learning and programming involved for a group of four students.

All four of them say that they learned a lot, and that even their interviewing skills improved because of their experience in COMP 410. I think that alone probably makes the class already worthwhile. I’m definitely glad I was able to be a part of it.

Some (blurry) pictures of the students’ presentation. I noticed it was recorded on video. I’ll try to find out where that video can be accessed.
