The design brief for this app was centered around enhancing how people experience time. By clearly defining the defendant factors, planning should be simple. Keeping O is an application made for collaboration and project management. The teams calendars are in sync and the calendar itself keeps track of tasks and project assignments for you.
Overtime the concept evolved from the center of the application — organizing collaborative calendars. We then had to look at how to get the user to utilize the tool — this involves set up.
The hardest part of this capstone assignment was keeping organized. Balancing work, class, personal goals, and personal life has always been a challenge. I like to go with the flow — in the case of class, go with the flow meant thinking about the assignment only when deadlines were approaching. I wish I took more time in needfinding and understanding where I can make a difference with a product. I’ve brainstormed different ideas with various collegues and a lot of great ideas were generated but nothing really stuck. Nothing seemed profound enough to make a difference in someones life.
It’s a hard task but totally worth while. I’d imagine if I had physical class and not a career to focus on, I’d like to think I would have done better but we can’t pause life. We have to make do with what we can. And that’s alright :)
