The Grand person project is this semesters project in which we are to design a network device to aid our chosen grand person in their lives.
My client is my friend John, he is a retired Surveyor who has travelled all over the world conducting business deals with a variety of cultures and now he is retired he travels for pleasure to see the far off sites of the world.
John has currently moved from his house in Edinburgh to a small cottage on the Borders surrounded by a national park and the splendid Cheviot hills.
John has three Children, one of his daughters works away as a journalist in foreign countries whom texts his other daughter (who works in the Council in the uk) every day to say she is fine and then relays this back to John.
John has retired from Surveying but still rents out a few properties to tenants.
John likes to do most of the repairs and refurbishment in the properties that he lets out.
John currently has a laptop and a mobile phone but struggles with some of the systems. He usually has a lot of errands to do every day and has reminders in the form of sticky notes which he sticks onto his mobile phone rather than storing them digitally within his mobile phone.
John uses sticky notes stuck to his phone to remind himself
