< Provide a complete solution for connecting with the friends.
< Help build online communities of people
< Provide productive environment as per user's reading
< To understand how social network works.
< To implement the system design tools, methodologies,
system development concepts & tools we have learned in
our four years academic session.
< Friends Ìnteraction
< Message/Status Update/Reply
< Like/Dislike Friend's Status

< Model-View-ontroller
< Separates:
 M: Data modeI
 V: Presentation (UI)
 C: Business Iogic
< rontend/Interface
The 'V' = View of MV Model
< Backend Design
M ÷ Model
÷ ontroller
of MV design pattern
System Design Pattern
< Technique for translating
relational entity to object
oriented entity.
< Hides the complexity of
SQL statement
Object/relational abstraction layer for PHP5.
Symfony MV Framework integrates Doctrine seamlessly as it's ORM
< A Multi riteria Decision Making (MDM) Technique.

< Search Engine Optimization
< Mobile Device Support
< Short Messaging Service (SMS) Facility to users
< Events/User Group creation
< Deployment over Ìnternet
< Problems Faced :
 Database Model became larger and larger when we were working on development. Ìt would
be better to brainstorm and discuss first on all the overall database design requirement and
propose a final Data Model.
 Design changed over and over again during development time. The best idea would be to
work on required output design at initial phase of the development
 Working on MV pattern should be best followed in the order M (Model Development), V
(View/Ìnterface Design) & (ontroller Management)
< Still, We Learned:
 Different system development methodologies/tools
 Project management
 Software Development tools
 Database Development
 Group working
< Former projects/reports
< Ìnternet
 Google
 Symfony Project Web Site
 Doctrine PHP ORM Web Site
 MySQL Dev Web Site
 PHP.NET web site
