Trip Together

Millions of people travel with their friends and family members throughout the year. However, when it comes to planning a trip with a large number of people, it gets convoluted since each person has a different idea of where they want to go, how much they want to spend, where they want to stay, how much they are committed to going, etc.

To solve the complex trip problem, Trip Together is a React Native application that makes trip planning, task delegation, and team collaboration easier than ever across Android and iPhones. The Trip Together team consists of six members: Braeden Haesemeyer, Romo Islam, Uan Le, Shirui Ren, Governess Simpson, and me.

To understand more about the problem, each member of the team conducted user research interviews with other students from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities to explore and learn more about their past experience with negotiating travel plans with family members, friends, or even strangers. We created a consent form that listed introductory information and background, our procedure with time estimates, any potential risks and benefits, and any comments about confidentiality and contact information. After the interviews, we conducted a qualitative analysis of the combined interviews to identify themes and patterns.
