As specified in the project schedule, I worked on Accommodation Module and it is now finished.
This module needs more work. Specifically, I have to add ranking and photo abilities later.
This module is able to:
- By entering into this module, the user is able to see a list containing all the accommodation of the University of Southampton and their address.
- Then, they can choose either to see more photos, ranks, or reviews. They first two options have not implemented yet and I will work more on them later.
- The review section is finished. The user is able to read all the reviews of accommodation.
At the moment, and mainly because of time limitation, the user is unable to edit or add anything and he is only able to read information. For instance, in this module, the user is able to read reviews or accommodation detail information. I decided to first focus on reading of materials and then add editing and writing section to all modules. For now, we do have sample data in our database.
But what’s good about this approach?
This approach will help us to design and implement the system very rapidly and then show it to our users and get updates and feedbacks. Furthermore we can ask their opinions throughout the work. This approach seems to be more rapid and we can design and implement the system quickly. After we get the final approval of users, I will add the editing and add features so they are able to modify information.
Now about the next module. I would like to work on search section and viewing friends profile as these two seems to be the most important thing in a successful social site. I have to think about whether the system is going to have two different kinds of profile (one for the user himself, and the other one which could be like a public profile). If I go with the second approach, later in the project life cycle, I can add security module easier. For instance I can have a trust module in which the public profile would be dynamic to different friends and people.
