Deb (dria)

Last week

  • Final review of current French Toast designs, all is well & very excited to get started
  • Put together initial draft of French Toast development plan
  • Sent User Research projects proposal (first two) to Cori - no word yet, but I think she's in Brazil
  • Went through some user research projects again in detail, started brainstorming out potential Pancake details based on them
  • Got my Nexus 7 and have started using it as my primary tablet in prep for Android client

This week

  • Flesh out French Toast development plan
  • Follow up with Cori about user research proposal
  • Further brainstorming/thinking around user research findings
  • Further thinking about a larger/longer-term user research project (4-6 month)
  • Finalize what needs to move to the public wiki in order to do an initial release & move those things
  • Start digging in to whatever research or information is available about search and sharing. Deep dive on these.

Gordon (gbrander)

Last week:

  • Created interactive prototype Keynote, with all screens and states interconnected by links. Everything screen except profile is represented.
  • Updated wireframes
    • Explored interaction paradigms for layer stacking, allowing users to easily hop between layers.
    • Wireframe for app dashboard
    • Updates to wireframes based on interactive prototype feedback
  • Updated UX deck with changes to wireframes.
  • Tested conversion scripts for Node JavaScript modules, making them AMD (client) compatible. This opens up a few potential libraries for use on the front-end.
  • HTML prototyping a TODOs app with Reducers library. This library could potentially simplify and improve performance of the front-end. We're giving it a smoke test by building a simple TODOs app with it.

This week:

  • User Research script
  • Field test paper prototypes -- see if this gets us better feedback
  • A few tweaks to the layer interaction model for the Keynote prototype
  • Create a full animated demo path for the app
  • Lean user testing with the prototype
  • A bit more experimentation with Reducers.

My goal is to make as much progress on design as possible right now so we don't end up with engineering outpacing design.

Sam (sfoster)
