Creating demos for your web applications

Recording a demo for your application can be an effective way to showcase its features to recruiters and potential users. It'll help them better understand how your project works and what it can do. Highlighting the key features and giving visual representation can help you stand out and increase your chances of landing a job during your search.

Here are a few tips:

1. Create a script

creating a script or giving yourself guidelines to follow will make the recording process 10x's easier. I'll ensure that you cover everything that you want presented.

2. Opening

Make sure to introduce yourself before starting. Give a greeting, state your name, the name of the project as well as a brief description of what it is and why you chose it.

3. Demonstration

Make sure to speak clearly and at a steady pace, highlight each feature and if you want, include any stretch goals that you may have.

4. Closing

When wrapping up make sure to repeat your name and the name of the project as well as reiterating what the project does. Then end it by thanking the viewer for their time.

5. Keep it short

Try to keep your demo short, aim for a video that is no longer than five minutes long.

*Example: *


Hello! My name is [YOUR NAME HERE] and this project is called [PROJECT NAME HERE]! [A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE WEBSITE].





In the future, I would really like to [STRETCH GOALS] But other than that that’s all I have!

again my name is [YOUR NAME HERE] and my project is called [NAME OF WEBSITE AND BRIEF DESCRIPTION]! And Thank you for your time!

6. Screen recording tool

Loom is a great tool for creating demos and is easy to use! You are able to download it on your computer as well as make it a Chrome extension for quick and easy access. It also allows you to trim and edit your videos if needed.


Recording demos for your projects can be an effective way to showcase your skills and help you stand out.
