My thesis proposes several approaches as result of the research questions. Their validity of each approach should be verified by allowing users to interact with a prototype built to fulfill […]

Master thesis – Implementation of Repositories

Master thesis - Session Repository
is article presents the system architecture and the underlying decisions that were taken to achieve the above requirements. The system requires a repository for sessions, a repository for Brainstorming items and a native Windows application for achieving the baseline of desired features. Thus, a distributed client – server architecture is considered, exemplified here.

Master thesis – Architecture

In this section the application requirements will be presented. They are split into functional and non-functional ones. The first refers to all the features needed to be implemented, while the second category refers to performance, extensibility and scalability of the system.

Master thesis – Requirements elicitation

There are two sets of features that must or can be implemented: the first ones which regulate the brainstorming activity as a set of rules; the second ones add productivity to the process, enabling additional scenarios that improve the user experience.

Master thesis – Typical use case

iMeet application is ready. I am very proud of this application, as it represents my achievements in fast learning and adapting to: new way of programming, as XCode and Interface Builder truly represent the ModelViewController paradigm; new language- Objective-C, which as any language has its pluses and minuses; new device: mobile devices on which I didn’t work since my experience on Sales Force Automation in TotalSoft company, back in 2005, on Windows CE.

Adding the points to the map is not as intuitive as it might seem, so let’s start by creating a new class called POI – point of interest. Assuming that we have the Latitude and Longitude as NSStrings, we check if they are filled. Then I create the CLLocationCoordonate2D which basically is a tuple of two doubles and then create the point of interest.
