Project Assignement

The goal of the project will be to implement a small web application using a Web Framework. A presentation of the result and of its realisation within a specific framework will be done at the end. The application will be deployed in a Cloud infrastructure and its behavior under different kind of load will be evaluated

The goal of the application is to allow users to manage and share lists. ListGeeks is an example of such a service.


  • Create a user account/Manage the user profile/Allow to link the profile to an oauth service like facebook or google.
  • Create a private list. A list is an ordered set of value. It can be used to store and order list about anything.
  • Add items to the list.
  • Change the order of the items in the list
  • Give access to the list to other users
  • Give rights to update the list to other users
  • Remove items from the list
  • Revoke users access to the list
  • Vote for the list
  • Post the list to Twitter

You will provide a REST Api for your application.

You will use the database of your choice to store the data

You will deploy your application on a PaaS
