Short Term Goals for this week

  • Use python to parse the social network data into a JSON
  • finish registration and login implementation
  • implement friends feature
  • implement matching feature

Challenges this week

  • Unsure of whether to use Neo4J due to potential cost. Need to parse JSON data and determine whether the size of the resulting graph is suitable for Amazon AWS. If not might use MySQL instead

Week of March 1st

  • added friends xml page
  • added match xml page
  • added Cloud Firestore

Challenges this week

  • Ran into trouble implementing what I assumed would be basic features to implement
  • Ran into bugs that took me a few hours to resolve
  • Will need to take time to learn how to implement some core features of app
  1. lists
  2. adapters
  • falling behind on implementing database and other backend features
