By this date, please:

1) Email me a .zip of the final documentation of your two projects — "Local Website" and "CSS Typeface". This should be what you showed in class on the last day (video, keynote presentation, PDF, etc.) plus any small updates you wanted to make. You can use something like Wetransfer to send me your .zip.

2) Make sure your class website is up-to-date, since I will be downloading a copy of each from your Github. Check to make sure you have no broken links and your website includes all:

  • weekly projects
  • written reading responses
  • in-progress and process sketches for your two main projects
  • exercises

Thank you!
