DOT-TO-DOT application development is a joint venture of STUDIO POP and Clyde Electronics teams. DOT-TO-DOT is developed using agile software development (ASD). It is a methodology for the creative process that anticipates the need for flexibility and applies a level of pragmatism into the delivery of the finished product. Agile software development focuses on keeping code simple, testing often, and delivering functional bits of the application as soon as they’re ready. The goal of ASD is to build upon small client-approved parts as the project progresses, as opposed to delivering one large application at the end of the project.
DOT TO DOT© comprises the following functionalities: (a) searching and filtering assets using multiple options; (b) retrieving information about: community-led services, gap sites and waste providers; (c) retrieving assets data; and (d) retrieving experiments with design and waste.
