A personal tracker of stuff you've done and things you want to do

Please note

Introduction

This application will create a personal tracker of stuff that you done and stuff you would like to do. So if you visit several restaurants and can't remember what you liked/disliked this app will keep that information so when your hungry on a Saturday you will always make a good choice. I believe by using azure i will be able to expand my network depending on how much data is needed.

Background  

The reason why I want chose to do this for my project is because I live in Chicago and every neighborhood has its own uniqueness to it. There are so many options and neighborhoods to explore and nothing to really keep track of it all.

 I  figure to accomplish this at the most basic level I will need to record several categories into a database.

| Decor |  Food | Service | Size | Comments |

Social:

Share with the social network of your choice (twitter, pintrest, g+, facebook, etc.)

Send recommendation using SMS to your contacts.

Using Azure

I  believe incorporating Azure into this project will give me the ability to scale faster depending on how many users start adopting this application.

Next Steps

Getting Started - Complete

Build a website - I will build a website using a responsive layout. The website will feature a demo of the criteria each business will be judged.

Using SQL on Azure Server - Once a user has rated the business the fields will be recorded into the sql server database. SQL will also hold information on the user accounts for login access. 

Virtual Machines - I plan on using a VM to host my web applicaiton. Not sure of what else it can be used for at this point.

Mobile Access - Since the website will be done using a responsive layout I am hoping that the design will be suitable for any sized screen. Hopefully if time permits if a device is offline leverage html5 to temporarily store information on the device until its able to upload.

 

Point of Interest

coming soon!
