Program Additions

We have decided to allow Colleges to run, debug, and launch our program independently and create their own Administration settings by themselves rather than us creating it for them. This will allow Colleges to view active victims and change our program to their liking rather than us having to view everybodys data. This will require a few extra pages in the program for Administration registration and a detailed instruction sheet on how to accomplish this.

Today, Tom Corona continues to get Aegis ready for its final touches. He is currently going through the whole program and debugging it. He is looking for errors on each specific line instead of the whole program itself. This way, he can identify the specific problem and solve it. Also, the rest of the team finished up the letters that they are emailing and mailing to all the Project Lead the Way affiliate schools. These letters are planned to be mailed out in the next few weeks when the project is finished.

Today, while Tom Corona and Tristan de Jesús worked on allowing students to save their profile information and writing the script for the picture identification to appear when a distress signal is received, the rest of the group worked on writing a letter that will be sent to Project Lead the Way affiliate colleges and universities. We are allowing Aegis to be an open source project available to any Project Lead the Way college and are making the script available to them to see as well as make changes to.

Yesterday, the InvenTeam members working on Aegis tested out the application on their smartphones. The signals are being sent to the website correctly, however some coordinates are a little bit off. This may be because of the weak Wi-Fi connections at the school. We are currently working on taking these coordinates and placing them on a visible mapwidget on the website as well as placing the login and signup features on the HTML page.

Over the past week, I have been meeting with former EDD student and current Worcester Poly-tech undergrad Tom Hays to discuss the remaining programming. We debugged our existing program as well as our program editor Eclipse. We also were able to accomplish writing much of the remaining script, and hope to have a all sides of the program working together in April. After we have the necessary functions of the program working correctly, we can add other minor details, streamline and debug the rest of the code, and also make our site and program more appealing to a user.

Today, Chad Baker and myself finished the HTML for the website. All we have to do now is put the comment box on the website and we will be handing over the HTML code to Tom Corona. Tom is working with queries today that verify login account information such as passwords and college ID's. We are close to putting all the pieces together and seeing the login functions of the website appear on the HTML pages and direct the user to different pages based on whether or not the account information is correct. We also have InvenTeam members working on a comprehensive game that will be played on YouTube. The person who clicks the video will play Tic-Tac-Toe against our algorithm that never loses. When they click a button on the video, it directs it to another YouTube video having the blocks placed in the spot where they clicked.

Website Just About Ready

Today, the InvenTeam members working on Aegis just about finished the Contact Us page on their website and will soon be handing over the HTML code to Tom Corona to incorporate with the Java. This will allow us to have the login and sign up features of the service on the website in addition to the security features. Tom is still working on the complicated UI Binder and is making heavy progress. After the UI Binder is done, and the HTML code is combined with the Java, we will be putting all our efforts into completing the database functions that will store account and profile information.
