Week 15: Pre Mortem

--Originally published at TC3045 – Sagnelli's blog

Some people say that time is money; however, I think that time is success.

The bad news is, time is running out. Teachers are actually being disrespectful and dropping more, and more homeworks while their projects are due in less than two weeks. Not much has changed from the previous blog post, but I am actually using this blog post as a stress reliever. Let’s hope my cards under my sleeve don’t run out.

Stay tuned for the next blog post, to see how this week developed.

Week 14 – Post Mortem

--Originally published at TC3045 – Sagnelli's blog


So last blog post I talked about my Database course project. We are using MongoDB as our backend along with Flask. We think is easier to implement python code with Flask than using exec functions on Node. Also, the learning curve of Node is way more difficult than Flask’s. Therefore, Flask is the winning framework to use. We won’t be using any agile methodology, since we started the project way too late. We are using XP methodologies to finish on time.

Stay tuned for this project’s advancements.

Week 13 – Post Mortem

This week we finished the back end part of the project. The analysis is finished, and it was accomplished using the indico library for sentiment analysis. Also, the elimination of stop words concluded almost perfectly, and the word cloud functionality has been finished. The analysis functionality is finished.

Next step is to implement our backend functionality with our frontend design. But, for this course, backend was our only scope. The frontend part is going to be covered by 2 of our teammates for another course.

Week 13: Pre Mortem

This week we need to talk about what is missing from the scope of the project. We need to focus on those aspects to accomplish what we planned from the beginning. Furthermore, this week is going to be all about planning our next moves. Planning what is missing, who is working on it, and who is testing it.

Don’t worry, the project is developing excellent, almost everything is covered up, but we might be missing some key features that make our project an accomplishment.

Stay tuned for the development of this planning week.

Week 12 – Post Mortem

This week we had our meeting with our counselor on the project, and we had an excellent feedback from him. I guess our project is on the final stretch, and we must focus on some minor improvements, and on the final QA part.

For this section of our project, I guess we are focusing in the Front End part of the project, and continuing our testing for fixing minor bugs.

Stay tuned for further developments on the project.

Week 12 – Pre Mortem

Coming back from holy week holidays, and I really need a second week off. However, it is time to return to our duties, and continue with this development. We are only a month away from finishing this course.

Last thing we were focusing on was the front end part of the app. This is the second phase of the project so to speak. We will be focusing on applying the sentiment analysis to show charts on the frontend, also to apply the backend to build the graphic word cloud, and give proper information, and direction on which candidate is leading the poll.

Stay tuned!
