Congratulations to the team of "DnD Cartographer!" This remarkable team of first-year students (yes, they haven't yet officially declared their majors) won the Overall Favorite at Neumont College of Computer Science's 2018 Project Showcase event.
Team Lead Emily Remy described the project as a map utility for dungeon masters playing the games "Dungeons and Dragons" or "Pathfinder." The team used Java, JavaFX, and SceneBuilder to make the application. Each of the winners received a pie and gift card for their efforts at the event.
"Colorize" by Maciej Smusz, a web development student, won the Faculty Favorite. He developed his project for Capstone: A course where student's prove their ready to tackle the challenges of the tech industry and Enterprise Projects. Maciej's passion for classic movies led him to train a convolutional neural network to automatically add color to old film footage. He says one of the biggest challenges of the project was working with new and experimental technologies with few resources to rely on.
Other remarkable projects presented at the March event include STEM MX by a team of students in their Enterprise Project. This web and mobile tool connects teachers with tech experts to help them teach students more about technology. The Enterprise team at TaskEasy also developed a user-friendly dashboard to help the lawn care company better manage their workload. And Morgan Smith's Capstone Project, "Publish.ME" offers a solution to connect aspiring authors with the publishing industry. Finally, "Cat Game: Heavy Machinery" by Christopher Robinson reminded all visitors that sometimes a game should just be fun.
