Week 7: Summer of Code

This week has been a productive week to say the least. I have recently completed all tasks associated with the core functionality of the back channel app. This included adding the ability for any user to join, search for, and create a session. Users that are affiliated with Freed-Hardeman have the ability to create or search for a session based on a certain class they might be involved in. Outside users still have the ability to create a session, it's just not tied to a particular class. We also added the ability to send out email invites to any one that the creator might want to have access to their session. We've also completed our roles and their functional privileges.

One additional functionality that was completed yesterday was the creation of our own application account management. Originally we had used the default ASP Membership accounts as the template for our Contribute Accounts, but it didn't work out so well. The Contribute Account also allows for the retrievals of forgotten passwords, so at the point that you log-in to the app, you'll never have an excuse to not be able to join again. 

Like I said it's been a very productive week and it's only going to get better. I'm learning a lot and becoming even more interested in this project than I already was. I'm looking forward to sharing some new features that will be added in the next few weeks very soon!
