Presentation #1 --   (date given here)

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce your project and the goals that you plan to achieve. The most important thing is that you clearly explain what is it that you're planning to achieve and how. It's not expected that you'd have any detailed system designs at this point.

1   Presentation Format

Each team is expected to prepare about 20 - 30 slides to present the following:

  1. 1 - 3 slides general background about your project.
    Mention existing systems, if any, that provide similar functionality; note that some systems are listed here:
    also check: Stock ratings from StockScouter

  2. 2 - 4 slides about the use case(s) that will be supported by the system that you're planning to develop and its high-level architecture (so called "block diagram")

  3. 2 - 4 slides about the Web service interface: what will go in and what will come out of your planned Web service;
    this means determining the signatures of methods (operations) that will be possible to invoke on your Web service
    (potential parameters that could be exchanged between the consumer and the Web service are listed in the book in Section 1.5.5; select those that you feel your team could realistically implement by the end of the semester)

  4. 10 - 15 slides about the indicators (such as trends and patterns) that can help in stock investment decisions and that your team will track. Although most of these parameters will belong to what is known as technical analysis, each team should consider some which belong to fundamental analysis. Also, although some degree of overlapping between the teams is acceptable, different teams should consider at least some unique parameters. (Of course, all projects should be developed independently of each other.)
    Explain the following:

  5. 3 - 7 slides about the Web sources where you'll gather the "raw" data that you'll use in calculating the above mentioned indicators for stock-investment decisions

  6. 2 - 3 slides about your plan of work, indicating the milestones and who'll do what
Note: Bring a printed copy of your slides to the presentation. Preferably print as handouts, 2 slides per page, double-sided.
