What is Story Board Building?

Storyboard Building

What is Story Board Building?

It is nothing but breakdown of all complex tasks that will happen in a project into simpler and easy to understand line items.

In other words, it’s a beautiful journey where Customer’s unstructured requirement is converted into understandable structured requirement.

Storyboarding is used in software development as part of identifying the specifications for a particular software (project). During the specification phase, screens that the software will display are drawn either on paper or using other specialised software (software tools) to illustrate the important steps of the user experience.

The storyboard is then modified by the engineers and the client while they decide on their specific needs. The reason why storyboarding is useful during software engineering is that it helps the user(user or developer or customer?) understand exactly how the software will work, much better than an abstract description. It is also cheaper to make changes to a storyboard than an implemented piece of software.

Who all will take part in it?

Usually the storyboard is designed by the Business Analyst who will initially look at the specification that the customer has given the Team to develop. Additionally a developer, usually the senior one will help in creating a storyboard. The client, can pitch in and make alterations to the storyboard.  The client can bring a programmer from their end too to have a look at the Storyboard and make changes to it.

What are the benefits of Storyboard Building?

  • They help us gather and share information about users, tasks, and goals.
  • They put a human face on analytic data.
  • They can spark new design concepts and encourage collaboration and innovation.
  • They are a way to share ideas and create a sense of shared history and purpose.
  • They help us understand the world by giving us insight into people who are not just like us.
  • They can even persuade others of the value of our contribution.

Although there are tools to generate storyboards respective to the customer’s requirements, manual creation adds a human touch to it. And auto generating them has their own flaws.

Hackathon for Cogzidel Blog Cleanup

Wordpress Blogathon

Situation

Wordpress Blogathon
Hackathon for Cogzidel Blogathon

Cogzidel Blog for long has been deserted & by time it has accumulated loads of garbage with poor content, no category listing, no tags etc…

Twice a team was formed to clean things and set things right… Unfortunately both times folks couldn’t complete the task..

Being a Social Media freak & a Blogger I couldn’t take it anymore… Finally I decided to take the challenge to do it myself…

Solution

I decided to do a HACKATHON and code named it as Cogzidel Blogathon

As a first step I set my Goals;

  • First to Trash all unrelated content…
  • Add appropriate Categories and place blogs under right category…
  • Add appropriate tags…
  • Add a Nice Theme…
  • Customize the Blog…

Then for execution I split the task into 4 Phases of Hackathon… First three phase were SOLO Hackathons and the last one is a Team Hackathon

Phase I: Deleted all unnecessary / irrilavent Blogs…
Phase II: EDITING Content, adding Categories & Tags to existing Blogs…
Phase III: Integrating & Customization of Theme…
Phase IV: The last phase involves a Team of Designer, System Admin, Project Manager & CTO to complete the final set to GAPS…

First three phases took me 2 hours each & planning to do the final Team Hackathon this Monday…

Environment & Gadgets

  • My Vacation house in Bangalore
  • HP Laptop & a Reliance Data card
  • iPhone 4 with 3G

Final Outcome

  • Trashed 360 irrilavent blogs
  • Added categories & tags to 160 blogs
  • Edited content to 40 blogs

Personally the experience was thrilling as it is a Solo Hackathon and feeling happy with accomplishment…
