Rapid Application Development to Create Proof-of-Concept Software Applications

Margarida Lucas da Silva, Hugo Silva, Daniel Gonçalves

Abstract

Rapid application development is the best way to test prototypes by giving a solid performance for user’s tests, while rapid application customization it is the best approach to easily test the user’s needs, such as children with autism spectrum disorders. In this paper we present a framework of a platform designed with these concepts in mind. This platform is a standalone multimedia and rich content software, targeted at students with special needs, that allows to easily expand the functionalities and create proof-of-concept software applications.
