The sixth Web Design & Development Final Presentations showcased the work of two students a day shy of graduating from Full Sail University. Students in the program are required to spend three months working on this project, which is designed to display all that has been covered throughout the degree, including designing creative visuals, developing coding, testing, and implementation of websites, as well as integrating flash and web standards.
First up was Michael J. Duke, who showcased his Merge Dynamic portfolio site. Michael provided the audience in the Entertainment Business Auditorium a look at his site’s back-end interactivity, including a message board system that allows him to be able to communicate with clients and share the progression and milestones of a particular project.
Connor Hasson combined his passions for websites and skiing (not exactly the best fit for sunny Florida) to create Off the Edge, an online community for free-skiers (think along the lines of the X-Games). Off the Edge allows users to create their own profiles, interact with one another, and share videos with one another.
After the presentations, both students answered questions from the audience in a brief Q&A session.
