UC Santa Barbara Computer Science Capstone    Presentations (@CS Summit) March 2025

CS189 B


CS189B is the second of the two courses that form the Capstone project sequence. The goal of this second course is to develop real systems for the selected project, test it in front of real users, adjust the designs given their feedback, and finally present it to the world! The course ends with a presentation day in which the completed projects are demonstrated publicly.

Course Expectations

All students taking the capstone course sequence must have a significant amount of time to dedicate to this effort over the next two quarters. In addition, all students must be capable of exceptional independent learning and be highly self-motivated and interested in making the team work and be successful.

Key Milestones

The course is structured in four two-week sprints.
At the beginning of the class, the teams are required to provide an overall, high-level development plan. At the end of each sprint, the teams are required to perform a Sprint Review (with the sponsor) and a Sprint Retrospective. The summary of these two efforts are to be discussed with the instructor during class. Teams will also create a presentation and poster to display at summit.cs at the end of the quarter.
