This group project is the final project for the course NETS 212 (Scalable and Cloud Computing) therefore the source code cannot be shared. A preview of the project is included at the bottom of this page.
The goal of the project was to build a mini-Facebook application where people can create accounts, search for others, add friends, post on each other's walls, comment on posts, update their status or profile info, chat with friends, visualize their network. While developing those features, a huge emphasis was placed on stability, performance, security, and scalability. Our team also decided to undertake some extra credit features, such as adding the ability for users to like posts, persistant group chats, infinite scrolling, ability to upload profile pictures, and ability to update login info (email and/or password).
