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

est. 5 hours

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

Week of March 8th

  • updated register feature
  • implemented view profile feature
  • updated friendlist feature with recycler view

est. 6 hours

Week of March 15th

  • added dummy data to database for testing (2 hours)
  • implemented friending feature (8 hours)


Challenges this week

  • making design decisions that were not initially planned
  • considering feature trade offs and trying to balance time component necessary and utility of the feature
  • issues connecting graph database to app

Week of March 22nd

  • finished implementing friend feature
  • starting work on matching feature
  • setting up aws
  • setting up neo4j on aws

est. 8 hours

Challenges this week

  • working with neo4j in was and monitoring the size constraints
  • getting started on actually creating the algorithms and for creating match queues

Week of March 29th

  • adding chat functionality
