During this project I was the Technical Lead in our team meaning I was in charge
of Repository Management, Functionality Testing, and creating builds for both PC and Android versions of the game. Through this project I became adept at using GitHub for Desktop, ensuring
my team could work together systematically.
I was also able to apply testing methods that I had learnt during previous education. At the end of each week, I tested all implemented functionality, in order to create a sprint success percentage. This Testing Document was used to guide the creation of the next sprint, and also helped with tracking overall progress of the project.
My secondary role on this project was that of the UX Designer. Almost all of my tasks were to research and create User Interface assets for the game, based on market research. This role consisted of taking a previously established Intellectual Property and adapting it for a mobile game. At every weekly session during this module, we were also tasked with preparing a presentation to present to our peers, as well as the module leaders. This resulted in a final presentation which is visible here.
A much more detailed break down of my role within the team can be found in this report.
"This team of 3 showed extraordinary skill, enthusiasm, organisation and professionalism. Each student understood their particular responsibilities and was able to deliver a high-quality product efficiently. They also reacted with vision and flexibility to changing situations, even at short notice. A very productive and invaluable process"
-Caroline Stephenson, Director of Rhythmic Learning
"This project has enabled a highly effective collaboration; not simply between Jack and his protocol partner (Mrs Stephenson) but with the management team within our school and all teaching staff"
"Jack is able to work to a deadline and has shown this following our multiple introductory sessions. Jack adapted the program appropriately following professional dialogue with the management team."
"Jack speaks confidently and exudes confidence in what he has created and why; explaining thoroughly the reasons why specifics of the program were in place yet what could be changed and adapted to meet the needs of the children."
"Jack clearly showed the communicative skills needed to engage with an audience"
"Jack should be highly praised for his superb work ethic, communication skills and ability, as well as his positive attitude towards this collaboration"
