week 3 down!

3 weeks down! and i almost can’t believe how fast the days have gone by. We have barely a week remaining to complete our project, which at the moment is on the integration phase.

I must admit, i thought i could finish the interface in about a week — but i was wrong! The struggle with designing the most intuitive, clean, and user-friendly interface brought me to the realization of how much we take for granted the things we see.  The project we are developing is heavy on user interaction, and it really quite drained me to come up with a clutter-free interface that would satisfy all the required functionalities. Apart from that, what almost got into my nerves was the cross-browser compatibility of the designs. There was no problem with the JavaScript and AJAX functionalities, but boy did i get stressed over the constant chaos i would see whenever i tested the application on a different browser. And it does quite get your head spinning at times having to revise what already looks perfect on one browser, but totally messed up on another.

The patience pays off, though. Right now i can really feel the progress. =) Barely a week remains, but i would like to lean on the optimistic side and say that we can accomplish this before the hundred and eighty hours run out! Wee, go us! =D
