Research and Computational Thinking
Looking at both our primary data, summarized in this infographic, and secondary data, we have come to the conclusion that Stylo is a product with a growing market in this day and age. There would be a demand for Stylo based on our surveys, and according to secondary research and our mentor, Stylo would be deemed a safe and effective product for dogs.
Our main area of testing throughout our time working on Stylo was app development. As our product is an online 3d model we didn't have the ability to test it compared to in a regular year where we could have built it and tested it. So instead a lot of the testing we did came with our app development, especially early on as we tried to relearn the basics of code.org. There was a lot of testing to see if buttons were working correctly, as we added the coding part of it and then previewed it and tested it. Doing that over and over until every section could be accessed and navigated easily. After the basic coding was finalized and fully functional we deliberated on the design of it. Trying out different colors and layouts, originally we had planned for every adjustment feature to have its own separate feature. However, we found this was too tedious and overall spread things out in a way that wasn't very user-friendly. So we instead settled on a more centralized design with a single offshoot.
The secondary research that we gathered can be found here. Various websites were used and most sources can be found in the link above the information.
