Z-ENG: Development of the Food & Fitness Monitor Application
Food & Fitness Monitor application allows a user to keep track of his/her physical activities (gym workouts, running sessions, etc.) by storing information about the workout sessions and simultaneously watching his/her nutritional progress by adding meals consumed and setting up nutritional goals.
My Workouts and Your Fitness Diary are examples of free Microsoft apps that allow a user to create and enter exercises and keep track of the workout sessions, calories burned, etc. The disadvantages of such apps are that they don't have pre-built types of activities and require a lot of work from a user to set up, not to mention not always easy-to-use interface.
Food Diary is an example of a free Microsoft application that allows users to track the amount of calories eaten by entering their meals or choosing from pre-existing ones. The disadvantage of this app is that it does not include an option for tracking burned calories from working out, so there is no way to see how they affect the target amount of calories set by a user.
Food & Fitness Monitor application is an application that merges functions of both types of applications by allowing a user to keep track of his/her physical activities in tandem with his/her nutritional progress. The workshop is designed to study the functions of both types of applications and develop a Food & Fitness Monitor application which will allow a user to be in complete control of his/her physical condition in a convenient manner.
The tasks of the student would be:
- To study workout tracking and food diary applications available on the market
- To work on the architecture of the Food & Fitness Monitor application (database, backend, frontend)
- To develop the Food & Fitness Monitor application as a pilot project
- To test and deploy the Food & Fitness Monitor application
Consultations and the application's interface are in English.
