Posted on Mon, 08/31/2015 - 23:11

As I mentioned in my last post, I'll be posting periodic updates on my capstone project as I make progress throughout the upcoming semester. For now, I'd like to share a copy of my project proposal that I had to get approved prior to enrolling in the Capstone Design Studio course.

Feel free to peruse the full proposal in its entirety. But for those with a short attention span like me, here's the TL;DR summary below:

Title:

Open Eggheads: A personal web platform for professional academics that is easy to use, portable, and extensible

Abstract:

The goal of this project is to create a flexible, extensible, personal web platform for professional academics. Specifically, this platform’s target user group will be those who are completing or have completed their graduate studies and are entering the academic job market, and who consequently require a professional web presence with which to market themselves effectively.
