Project roles: Software Architect & Process Analyst

My roles in this project will be to play my part as a software architect and process analyst. As a software architect I was responsible for making the high level designs choices and dictate technical standards. I was responsible for deciding on the software pattern that would best suit Locate-A-Quake. The pattern decided was event based and MVC for the user to manipulate the view without changing the underlying data.

As a process analyst I worked with my team members to decide on the best way to undertake the project and break down the work into smaller tasks as this will help everyone improve their understanding of the project.
