The Assignment Assignment

Goals

By the end of this project, you will have a well documented portfolio of work that you have completed over your time at Turing.

During your career, it is wise to collect and document your abilities and the work you have put in to become better at programming. It’s helpful to collect this information about yourself when it comes time to ask for a raise, get a new job, or even just sit down and confirm that you’re on the right self learning path.

The project, if you choose to accept it, will be due Monday morning of week 6. If major adjustments are needed, you will be permitted to make them over week 6, and, in extraordinary circumstances, over intermission week.
