Presentation Plan

Link to the presentation.


My presentation will be a brief overview of my project, communication with the customers, and what I've learned.

  • I'll start with a basic overview of the project.  
  • Then talk about my experience with the different nonprofits.  I'll go into detail about the surveys I sent out, and the responses I got back. 
  •  I'll go over the user stories and database design.  
  • Finally I'll show my HTTP prototype and link my project.

HOK Use Cases


This is the Use Case for a proposed application that would provide a link between students and volunteer organizations.

HOK Activity Diagram


HOK responded to my questionnaire about how they get their scheduled events out to the public.  They use multiple national networks, as well as a local site.  They receive feedback through their site.

Interview: Honolulu Event Calendar

I'm going to use a similar strategy to Phone App for Non-Profits for the event calendar.  I'll send out a basic questionnaire after introducing myself. Then if they'd like to be more involved, I'll provide them with an area to fill out when they'll be available.

Questionnaire for a Honolulu Event Calendar:

Would an application that broadcasts current events and volunteer opportunities to locals and tourist be useful?  Why or Why Not?

How often would you use this application?

What are some key features that would need to be included?

Would you prefer this application work on a:   (Check all that apply)
     PC
     iPhone
     Android
     Other

 Does you organization already use an application to broadcast events?

Any other questions or comments?

If you'd like to discuss this idea further(or maybe have another technical problem I could help your organization with) please indicate below how you'd like me to contact your organization.


Thank you for taking the time to fill out this questionnaire!

Interview: Phone App for Non-Profits

There are tons of non-profits in the area, and I'd like to get as many opinions as possible.  After initial contact I'll send out a questionnaire to all the interested groups.  Then, if they'd like to be more involved, I'll provide them with an area to fill out when they'll be available.

Questionnaire for a Phone App for Non-Profits:

Would an application that broadcasts current openings and volunteer opportunities to local students be useful?  Why or Why Not?

Interview: Computer Club Website

Unlike my other two ideas, I'll probably conduct this interview in person.  I'll probably bring it up at the next club meeting.

Interview guidelines for a Computer Club Website:

Would a website to display the club's projects be beneficial?

Would the website need to be "mobile friendly"?

What are some capabilities that this website should have?

Should the website be geared towards recruiting new members or displaying work for potential employers?

Who should have administrator privileges?

How should the website be financially supported?


This is just an outline of the important questions that should be asked.  Of course, other questions will be asked, but they'll generally depend on the answers to the questions listed.
