Abstract [en]

This thesis revolves  around the implementation and design of a social discovery web service called Go&Grow whose beta version was launched in september 2012. The aim of this study was to conduct a theoretical analysis of service design, putting it in comparison to other design disciplines, and finding key points in designing this web service. Another purpose was to start the implementation of the service using the web framework Django and further to evaluate different web techniques used to build such a system. Methods applied in this study were taken from literature describing the service design process.Based on these ndings, the identication of persons that should be involved in the design process was found. Also, prototypes of the design proposals were created to test user interaction and experience. The system has been implemented by using web techniques including Python and the Django framework, HTML, CSS, AJAX and JavaScript. Bothback-end as well as front-end development has been perfomed, though this thesis mainlyfocuses on the front-end aspects of implementation.The results of the study were a new design proposal of the web site as well as a launchedbeta version of the Go&Grow service.
