Group meeting

25 November 2013

We met in ‘Winter Garden’ in college to discuss our project and to work on our presentation. We have planned to do new presentation and change the layout and polished our idea. That was the longest meeting we had so far and took us 1,5 hr to organize everything in our presentation.

We have also talked with our lecturer Matt Green and asking for advice in relation to Processing and other aspects of our project.

Group Meeting

As Henry researched the project which we all really liked from the moment we watched it, it feels like we all decided to changed the idea. We’ll reduce our working area from Europe just to the city of one country but will work as hard and focus on details as much as we can to achieve the right ‘look and feel’ of it, with the  limitation of project deadline.

We need to rethink our idea and target audience. We also need to work on group name and logo.

All our members gives idea for the project name into our Facebook group and we’re voting which one to choose.

Pinterest trouble

As I cannot pin anything on the group project using my pinterest account I will share my pins directly here.

Group meeting

We meet to discuss use of Google map and after some research (from each member) we all agree on using Flash and ‘Smartfox’ server in our project as Henry found interesting material about it on-line.

We also spent some time on organizing our presentation which I set up as a Google document file on-line to give equal access to it to all members.

More research

  •  that’s interesting link:

“Discover the diversity of nature in Dublin, how it is researched, managed and enjoyed by Dubliners and visitors alike.”

You can click on the map and there’s an option to listen the audio for it but the screen goes black and you can see the mp3 player on it and hear the screen.
