C10 End of Specialization projects

Friday, May 7, 2021, Cohort 10 ended Specialization. To conclude their journey at Holberton School, students had to build a Portfolio project. Here is a snippet of some of our students’ (great) projects.

AR/VR Specialization

Inès Chokri from Holberton School Tunisia worked on a project called “The Witch’s Trial” which is a VR game (arcade/adventure) in which the player is a witch and will have to pass a trial to prove their worth as one. The player will go through multiple levels (only one level has been made for now). Each level is timed and is different from the other as it tests every time the ability of the witch. The first level is the Flying test. The witch has to fly with a broom through circles and collect diamonds before time runs out. Pink rings add additional time, red rings subtract time and asteroids take a diamond from the witch.

Project: The Witch’s Trial

Justin Majetich from Holberton School New Haven worked on a project called “VR Wheelchair“. It is a manual wheelchair locomotion system for virtual reality applications. The system will be packaged as a complete player controller rig which can be easily imported into an existing Unity project. VR Wheelchair is motivated by a general interest in representation within gaming. It also addresses a key strength and weakness in the medium of VR — immersion and locomotion, respectively. Read more about the project.

Machine Learning Specialization 

John Cook from Holberton School Tulsa worked on a project called “Quantum Machine Learning vs Classical Machine Learning“. This project covers a comparison between the two and describes where quantum machine learning is useful right now. Read more about this project.

Project: Quantum Machine Learning vs Classical Machine Learning

Diego Felipe Quijano Zuñiga, Oscar Rodriguez, and Samir Millan Orozco from Holberton School Colombia (Cali) worked on a project callled “COVID-19 radiography detection“. This project attempts to detect through the use of data and image analysis tools in the field of Machine Learning, such as convolutional neural networks or deep neural networks, the detection of COVID-19 SARS COV2 in chest X-ray images.

Project: COVID-19 radiography detection

Web Stack Specialization

Jhoan Stiven Zamora Caicedo, Angel Omar Pedroza Cardenas, Javier Andrés Garzón Patarroyo and Michael Orlando Cocuy Garzón from Holberton School Colombia (Bogota) worked on a project called “SolucionesYa“. Pitch: Allow freelancers to get exposure on the internet by publishing the services they provide and their contact information in a centralized information hub.

Project: SolucionesYa

Aura Marina Pasmin, Carlos Daniel Cortez Pantoja, Felipe Satizabal Vallejo, and Jorge Chaux from Holberton School Colombia (Cali) and Holberton School Tunisia, worked on a project called “Agora Events“. Pitch: Web application under the start-up mode, which aims to generate a virtual communication space for companies and people to highlight their events. The application is designed for people to post or attend different types of events as corporate, academic, cultural, and sports.

Project: Agora Event

Khalil Sdiri and Rakia Somai from Holberton School Tunisia worked on a project called “Postme“. A MERN social media application with users, posts, likes, and comments – developed using React, a GraphQL server that uses Node and Express to communicate to a MongoDB Database and fetch and persist data to the app back-end.

Project: PostMe
