Tariq Horan 

BSc [Hons] Creative Computing

With a strong foundation in software development principles and a passion for leveraging technology to assist others, I am a diligent and dedicated 1:1 software development graduate. Through projects and internships, I've honed skills in front-end, back-end development, and user experience design. I spearheaded projects as a software developer enhancing the student services offered by IADT. A graduate of BSc (Hons) Computing from IADT, I possess diverse skills in web development and emerging technologies.

Project Description

This project aimed to construct a system that allows students at IADT to efficiently access information regarding the institute's services. Initiated by a group within IADT, it was identified that the existing student services page was inadequate and required redevelopment. Subsequently, the project proposal was submitted to and won the N-TUTORR competition, securing funding for its development. With a focus on inclusivity, the application caters to neurodivergent students' needs. This report will outline the project's progression and the resulting system. The development process encompassed various stages, including planning, design, implementation, and testing. Testing was conducted iteratively throughout and after implementation, revealing positive results regarding usability and functionality.
