Technical development update

Since the beginning of the KAPTUR project, the Technical Manager has maintained contact with the UCA IT department to ensure they are aware of the project and its requirements. Work requests to IT have established precise deadlines, however for the purposes of this blog post the following tasks are represented in a month-by-month format for easy viewing:

Who What When (2012)
