My name is Maksym Vavilov. I’m from the Ukraine and I’ve completed the Bachelor of Computing and Multimedia at the Dorset College in 2019. After it, I’ve continued my study at Maynooth University as a Master’s student in Computer Science.
The final year project for the course was an Android application, that was combining it into several instruments for the guitar player to make life easier. It includes online and offline libraries of the songs, tuner, and metronome for the practice.
What topic did you choose?
I’ve chosen an Android-based application as it is the most popular platform and guitar thematic. I’m the person who has a decent experience with the guitar myself and familiar with most of the difficulties nowadays.
What was your approach to the project?
I started with researching what already existed by the time I was about to start it. A huge help was a supervisor who advised me of what was expected to accomplish. After this, there was only one thing left – combine my previous experience with my new knowledge.
If you have to resolve a problem, can you describe it and mention what was the solution that you have found?
The whole project was solving one problem after another, but every time the solution was right in from of me – or in the notes from the class or in the words from the lecturers. All I needed was to do what I was taught to do.
What did you discover?
During the work, I discovered most of the work is done by other people before me in other applications and the main work was to implement it into my project and ensure that it works as intended.
