Project Progress Summary

Project Challenges

The team has learned how to translate business requirements into a IT solution. As the team is using Objective C and wants to submit the application to the app store, we have to adhere to Apple's iOS Human Interface Guidelines (HIG).

When developing the application, our client wanted a checkbox to be implemented. However, this could not be fulfilled in the iOS environment as it's against the HIG. Any attempt to go against HIG would means our application would be rejected when submitting for reviewal.

Another issue our team faced is the accepting credit cards in PayPal. However, B1G1 does not have SSL server and though we could get the PayPal to accept credit cards in sandboxed environment, the actual implementation would be longer than the expected as we need to code on both the SSL server and the application. Given the short timeframe, the app that we submitted only accepts PayPal accounts.

Quality

We had designed all our database transactions with REST web services. As such, when B1G1 wants change the type of information to be displayed to the users, they just need to alter the web service and does not need to be submitted to App Store for reviewal again.

Deployment

Click here for the architecture diagram

During the entire phase of development and testings, our team are connected to B1G1's staging database. 6 devices were deployed during internal testings, UAT 1 and UAT 2. As our application can only de deployed to iPhones, we could not provide a direct link for our client. We could only do so when we met with our client during meetings and push the application into their respective phones.

Testing

We had a total of 16 test plans and 2 UATs. Each test plans have approx 15 test cases each and should any bugs found during the testing phase, the team would log them with the bug metric. Refer to here on more information of our test plans and test cases

Individual Reflection

Vyane's Reflection
"It is only just the beginning"
Finally, we have come to an end of our final year project, there are many mistakes we made and lesson learnt. Throughout the entire process, it is certainly an enjoyable one. Our FYP group spent endless hours working together through thick and thin. We celebrated birthdays, did team bonding like going Malaysia, Hong kong, and many places. We really did work hard and play hard. We took on challenges such as scope change, difficulties in the implementation of databases and following the apple iOS HIG. Today, we look back into where we start, how we form the group and how we make use of our individual weakness and strength. Now, FYP is coming to an end, but I realized that we've only complete 1 iteration of our life. With what we learnt from FYP, we will be able to take on further challenges to start our own business or revolutionarize the software industries using our technical expertise.
"End of the story"
End of the story, we became best friends after spending so many hours working together, facing challenges and making things happen! Our strategy is to bid for the same class, so with our common schedule we can utilize it better. So in fact, we spent over 60hours a week being together. This marks the tedious but most memorable experience in SMU.

Hui Juan's Reflection
Having been working on the project for 6 months, I can really feel that at different stage of the project, we've learnt different things. Today, the project is coming to an end very soon. I can feel that we are working towards a different objective. Near the ending stage, we are now looking towards having a quality product. It is also important to be able to be in-line with B1G1's business objectives. We are no longer looking at the functional requirements stage anymore. It has been interesting to see how the project changes at each different stage.


Having gone through the many weeks of FYP, it has been a journey with much obstacles faced. We've had several scope changes. I would say that we are able to cope with them fairly well. The project has been a great one so far. I do hope that we will have more chances of embarking on similar projects like this in future. I'm glad everything went well. This has been a great learning experience that I believe is worth the hard work.

Eugene Chong's Reflection
The final league of FYP is coming to an end and I am proud to say I have gained the much-needed technical knowledge in Objective-C to develop an Apple Application. I am able to put the knowledge to good use in future and perhaps start developing my own applications to be listed in the App Store!

Looking back at when we first accepted the project, the team has came a long way till date and the bonding we have is simply irreplaceable! We worked hard to deliver the end product without compromising our schedule. The synergy we have boils down to everyone's determination and hardwork. I am glad to have them as my teammates and I am sure we would all love to see the success of the Giving Life App in time to come!
