This quarter of planning and preparing for actual project implementation has just flown by. Here we are at the end of week eight, and only two more to go. Scary and exciting at the same time. Really, I think that we are still on target with our timeline, but it still feels like there are a lot of little pieces that still need to come together.
This week at our meeting we set to work determining the crucial elements that will need to be included in the mobile version. I am really happy that we choose to develop the requirements for mobile first so that we can then view the full site as an expansion and we will have a much better grasp of what is crucial and what is not.
From here we will be able to work out the visual design and know that we have mapped out the conceptual and structural design as a foundation. We have also been continuing to put the thesaurus to the test by doing a lot of indexing of real comics. This has really helped us identify areas that need a little love. We want the thesaurus to be useful for all the indexers at the MLLL, but we also want it to work for the system users. To accomplish this it must be clear, understandable and fun. I believe that we are well on our way to reaching this goal.
