This is a draft only!
It is still under construction and content may change. Do not rely on this information.


  1. Select one of the topics below by placing your name in the "Student" column (first come, first served - one student per topic).
  2. During week 5, research the topic and prepare a 3- to 5-minute presentation to teach the answer to the class.
  3. Be prepared to teach this presentation during week 6. You may want to draw whiteboard diagrams, use presentation slides, or have a 1-page handout. Please avoid taking more than 5 minutes in total for your presentation.


  • Topic selection: 9:50 am, Tuesday, February 10 (End of the scheduled Tuesday class in Week 5)
  • Presentation ready: 8:00 am, Tuesday, February 17 (You must be prepared to present before the scheduled Tuesday class in Week 6)


  • Q: How much detail should the presentation include?
    • A: Each of these topics is pretty small and straightforward. Provide enough detail that your colleagues in this course will know what they need to know going forward -- the focus is practical knowledge necessary to understand, modify, and write code. Where appropriate, provide some type of resource for future reference -- a link to an existing web resource, a 1-page handout, or a blog post or wiki page about the topic.
  • Q: How will this be marked?
    • A: In week 6, I will ask you to write a short blog post summarizing your presentation.
  • Q: What about the topics not selected by a student?
    • A: Feel free to grab a second topic if you're interested. I'll teach the unclaimed topics.
  • Q: Can we work with others preparing our topic?
    • A: Yes. In many cases, one topic is complimentary to another topic, and it would be great if you coordinated on your presentations.
  • Q: What resources should I use?
  • Q: Are there any classes scheduled during Week 5?
    • A: No. Your professor will be at Linaro Connect. However, the classroom is reserved for our use, and you're welcome to use it to discuss your presentation ideas with classmates.
