Logistics for PDV (49-792) Fall 2016

Here are some of the details for Product Definition and Validation for FallA 2016.

Class meets on Tuesdays from 12:00 to 1:20 PM (Part-time students) on campus.

In addition, you will have regular team meetings with your instructor.

Notes on Task 4 presentation

The key idea of this task is that you should be able to explain the problem you are addressing and the main features of your solution in five minutes. It's not a research seminar or an investor pitch, but an announcement, so you have to cut to the chase and get people interested in learning more.

You're not supposed to present the history of the project, the architecture of your system, or your marketing plan -- just pretend that you are out there in late 2011 or early 2012 and launching your product to the world at a suitable event.
