Opening lecture 11th Sept 2014:

Based on brainstorming after opening lecture, we formed a team with an idea to solve the need for housing and accommodation for students

Housing and Accommodation
The idea arose from the situation of 2 of us having problems with our accommodation situation.
The reasons behind this proposal were:

*For international students the main option for housing is LOAS, which is of great help,
 but also is clearly unable to fully accommodate all the students in the area.
*Other options, such as other companies or private landlords, usually do not rent to foreigners.
However, we did not have a clear idea of what tool or service we needed to develop to solve these problems.
Also we did not make a final decision on this topic, we also agreed to think of more possible projects, until our next meeting. 

Meeting 27 Sept 2014:

In this meeting other ideas were proposed by other team members. We also discussed about possible developments for the previous and new ideas:

  • Real time transportation schedule of Lappeenranta city.
  • Shopping Center application for digital advertising and information

After some discussion, the team agreed to drop the accommodation and housing idea, and merge the shopping center and transportation ideas into one application.
