Don’t fret! Furo is here

Hi! Welcome to our blog! In this blog post we’d like to introduce you to Furo and talk about what we have done so far.

Furo is a simulation game for veterinary students that they can use to practice their clinical reasoning skills. Clinical reasoning is the process of diagnosing a patient with a certain disease. Since it’s aimed at veterinary student the patient can be any kind of animal! With Furo the students will be able to go through a variety of cases, designed by their teacher. A big advantage of Furo is that the students can practice anytime and anywhere they like. In the current situation they always have to attend lectures with the teacher to be able to practice.

20160216_125637-1The past week we’ve been laying down the foundation for building Furo. Together with our client we have learned a lot about the process of clinical reasoning and how it is currently being taught. The first case we will be developing is based on an ill ferret. The Latin name for ferret is ‘Mustela putorius furo’, hence the name Furo. We have done some very important research as to what ferrets looks like, as you can see in the picture to the right.

We have also picked our technology stack – we’ll be going C# full on! The plan is to use Unity with WebGL on the front-end and ASP.NET on the back-end. This stack will hopefully allow us to quickly iterate, so that Furo will be a fantastic product in four months!
