Project Guidelines

Naming Convention

A semantic naming convention not only helps in the grading process but it helps you and others make sense of your files. You are required to follow the following naming convention on all projects folders and files.


  • harper-ken-resume.pdf
  • harper-ken-web.psd

Project Turn-in Requirements

The Server

The server turn-in will constitute the bulk of your grade but the blog turn-in will be a great resource for your classmates and future students.
