Web Design 12: Marketing Campaign

For this project, you and your partner will create and launch an online marketing campaign for a new satiric product of your choice. The product may be an ordinary item used in an unconventional way (e.g. rubber bands for finger workouts) or a comedic new invention that no reasonable person would buy (e.g. EZ Butter). Be fun and creative.

The marketing campaign will include four major components:

  • a prototype of your product (choice of physical or digital)
  • a business plan for prospective investors (Prezi)
  • a supporting website with social media extensions (Dreamweaver with Facebook, etc.)
  • a 3-5 minute infomercial (YouTube)

Each part will be later discussed in further details.

Article: Programming for Scientists and Engineers (ACM)

An excerpt from the article Why Scientists and Engineers Must Learn Programming by Phillip Guo on BLOG@CACM:

Over the past few years, many scientists and engineers have ranted to me about how furious they are that nobody made them learn programming back in high school or college. They now realize how much more productive they could be at work if they had developed those skills earlier.

Based on these conversations, I’ve come up with three reasons why scientists and engineers must learn programming:

  1. You can work 10 times faster by writing computer programs to automate tedious tasks (such as data cleaning and integration) that you would otherwise need to do by hand. If you know how to program, computer-related tasks that used to take you a week to finish will now take only a few hours. Continue reading

IT 10: Golden Age of Video Games

For this assignment, you create a game review on a poster board based on a vintage coin-operated arcade game from the “golden age.”

Except from Wikipedia:

The golden age of arcade video games is defined as the peak era of arcade video game popularity and technological innovation. Although there is no consensus as to its exact time period, most sources place it as starting in the late 1970s and lasting to the mid-1980s.

During the late 1970s, video arcade game technology had become sophisticated enough to offer good-quality graphics and sounds but it was still fairly basic as realistic images and full-motion video were not yet available. The success of a game had to rely on simple and fun gameplay. This emphasis on the gameplay is why many of these games continue to be enjoyed today despite being vastly outdated by modern computing technology.
