So I've submitted my written treatise and source code online.
My thesis is officially finished!

The prototype focused on implementing the proposed design for Facebook. I also included a detailed Readme file to assist in the setup required for the prototype. The prototype not only exports a .dot file, but renders a personal social network on screen. An example network is visible below.

I am very pleased with the results of the prototype, and I hope my presentation in a few weeks goes well.

Draft Treatise Submission

I just submitted the draft of my treatise through eLearning.

In my draft I've completed the:

  • Abstract
  • Acknowledgements
  • Literature Review
  • Design: Proposed Method and Implementation
I've also outlined the sections for the strengths and limitations of the proposed method and implementation.

The included prototype implementation authenticates the user with Facebook and retrieves their friends list. The prototype then prints the details of the target user and if the flag is set to true, the users friends list.

Brief Development Update

I've had a few midterm exams and assessments so progress over the past few weeks has been a little slow.

Scribe seems to be the way to go so far as establishing a connection to Facebook. I was able to retrieve information from my own profile. I'm now working on customising it for my own needs, and determining what permissions and data I will be retrieving.
