This week I’ve begun exploring use cases and possible user stories. Working through our Mother Goose corpus is forcing me to think more about the kinds of questions we can ask of our TANDEM data. It is proving to be a taxing but eye-opening experience. I am having a serious case of scope creep when it comes to data visualization. I want to play with all these intense tools, but I am running low on time and energy these days.
We are at a really great place as a team. Everyone is working with renewed optimism and energy. I think that we are all seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Along with the team developments this week, I have begun to consider how to best frame our project for the final presentation. What kinds of things do we highlight from our journey and from our end product. It is easy to get caught up in the haze of everything that has happened in these short months. The accelerated process makes for a good narrative. I think that at the end of the day we have built a legitimate living breathing tool that people will benefit from using. That to me is amazing on it’s own. DH Praxis is something of a dream for students like me. I am no longer looking over the fence to my friends in the sciences who seem to be creating more than learning. There is still a high level of accelerated learning, but creation is in the spotlight these days. That is the highlight of this experience so far.
