Project

Create a Customer Registration Website for PMP Bootcamp taught by Professor Kanabar.

Scope 

The scope of this project is to construct a WEB portal that will enable customers of Kanabar to register over the Internet. There is no current system for registration. Customers send email which is very tedious and also some requests get lost in junk mail. The portal will be run as a real-time portal and Kanabar will have access to registered students data. The portal will be linked to a back end database that will provide query capability.

The website is yourteamname.PMPfundmentals.com

Product backlog:

  1. Form to Enter PMP Bootcamp registrants.
  2. Screen to View Registered Students (password protected).
  3. Documentation – PM templates and Agile including research summary.
  4. Allow students to register for either PMP Bootcamp or Agile Bootcamp.
  5. Create a password protected page that downloads data for mailchimp integration
  6. PayPal payment for customers with no proof.
