Some Design Mock-ups!

I’ve not posted much on my project recently, and that’s because I’m doing research. The research is a lot harder than I expected due to there being very little papers or credible sources relevant to the area I’m doing my project on. I’ve taken a break from that today and done some design mock-ups for the Cloud Interface (which will be running on App Engine). I used Google Drawings to create these and utilised some templates provided by Morten Just, which you can find here.

GitHub Repos live & General Project Update

Right! Github repos are up and Live! (ignore the current 3 or 4 commits, I made some edits to the Readme files).

I’ve made it an organisation so I can keep the two parts of the project, the cloud UI and the Raspberry Pi Application, separate. This makes it easier to both view and edit the two sections as they both run on different platforms etc.

I’ve also made some changes to the design document from the feedback provided by my supervisor, added all the titles and subtitles to my report and revised my Gantt chart! This means I have a basic overview of how my project is going to run. I’ve given myself around 6 weeks programming time, with other work also being done at the same time, hopefully this won’t overrun. In my previous post you will see that I’m also using MoSCoW prioritisation, this should ensure that I have at least a basic working solution early on and will work on the additional features for as long as I have time.

Draft Design Document

I’ve completed a draft design document for my project today. This is basically an overview of what I want the project to be, but remember that this is by no means finished and is simply an early draft. Any suggestions on features or additions please feel free to contact me
