The Homework Forecast assists users deciding when they should complete their homework. Pulling information from a weather API the Homework Forecast decides when homework should be completed based on the weather, when the homework is due and how much time the homework will take to complete.
This was an individual project
After conducting some research, I began sketching ideas with pen and paper. In my initial ideas I included weekly views of the weather and an extended forecast section. Reviewing my sketches with different people and discussing my project helped me realize, just because I can pull a large amount of information from an API does not mean it is useful to anyone. Would someone really use my weather application in place of their normal daily weather source? The obvious answer was no. Thinking critically about my ideas allowed me to focus my project and remove unnecessary features, simplifying the application.
