Introduction to "Nautilus" Case Study
Based on the brief of “Nautilus” and since we are talking for an imaginary company, I built on my mind a specific scenario for the required tasks. Doing some research online, I found that expeditions like these happen mostly in islands complexes such as Caribbean islands, Indonesia, Canarias Islands etc. From the start I was stuck with the Caribbean Sea islands – I don’t know, maybe I was inspired by the famous movies series (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) with the exotic seas, shores, undiscovered treasures, reefs etc. So, I started thinking about how to build a company “Nautilus” that operates firstly on Caribbean Sea islands.
While designing the application I thought of making “Nautilus” app more expandable into other regions as well. This is a feature that can support the scalability of the project: Users can search and book from a variety of regions and expeditions. In my scenario available are four. My other thought was to ask permission for the user’s current location so to auto-suggest the nearest available expeditions and regions to choose from. But it’s something that can be added on a future update and therefore I used the scenario with the only four regions, to build the project.
