For your Responsive Website Development and Design Specialization Capstone Project, you will create a complete, responsive, multi-user, data-driven website which aims to solve a particular problem.

In the capstone project, you will:
1. Develop a complete website using the full range of skills learned during the specialisation
2. Work through a structured process from idea generation to product delivery
3. Document and receive feedback on the development of your project from an idea to a fully functional piece of software in a series of structured assignments including peer interactions
