Built on top of the first progress report. You can add more to the motivation based on updated understanding of the project. You can also add more to the related work if you find anything new. Design of your solution must be more concrete (if it was not already so in the first progress report). In addition, you must discuss the progress you made towards implementation and present some preliminary results. A small section at the end of your report should list the delta over the first report (what new sections/sub-sections were added, and which sections were heavily edited).

Final presentation (day, time, location):
Each presentation must be at most 10mins long. It should cover the motivation of the project (especially in context of relevant related work), briefly explain the approach/design, and present the key results. The entire presentation maybe given by a single team-member or maybe split across the team. Each presentation will be followed by at most 5mins of Q/A. All students are welcome to sit through other presentations, and ask questions if time permits.
Students are expected to complete 3-4 simple warm-up assignments (online tutorials) on relevant networking tools -- details will be made available a week before each assignment is due.
The assignments must be done individually. However, each student must pair up with another student to act as each other's TA. If a student is stuck at any step, they may consult their partner. If both partners are stuck, they may reach out to the instructor.
What to submit? Each student must submit a brief evaluation report for their partner that answers the following:
When to submit? The evaluation reports are due by 7pm on the specified assignment deadline date. Each student is expected to work around the constraints of their partner to ensure that they are given sufficient time to write the report after assignment evaluation.
How to submit? Fill out this form. The form can be accessed via your NetID.
Policy: Failure to submit an evaluation report for their partner will nullify any points a student scores for completing their own assignment.
