Each month, UC San Diego students will be able to create a project in response to the month's [PROM]pt and have the chance to take the throne of best Project of the Month! Think of it like a hackathon, but on the time scale of a full month. The [PROM]pt of the month and winners of the previous month will be honorably posted in a display case in our computer science labs!
For more info, check out http://cses.ucsd.edu/prom/
Teams can be a maximum of 4 students, and must be composed of all UCSD students.
This month's [PROM]pt:
Success at UCSD is in large part determined by a student's’ performance in courses. Many factors influence this, ranging from selecting courses to studying for a final exam. Create an application that will redesign and enhance some aspect of a student’s interaction with courses at UCSD.
Make sure to develop and design for production, not purely for competition; create something that you and your peers will actually use!
