Description

The deliverables for this project are focused on building artifacts that you can use to showcase your work in a job application. By the end of the project, you will have built a full-stack software application that follows multi-tier architecture. You will learn about databases, back-end systems, and front-end systems. You will learn how to build an application that is extensible and complete. The application can do what you wish but must have all the relevant components. At the end of the project, you will deploy your application for anyone on the internet to view. This way, you’ll have something tangible to show recruiters for future job prospects.
