Educomer: Nutritional advice Database

Austin ShiehKuan Chen Stephen Li Richard Zhang Group 6

A website to educate people on nutritional values

The Problem:



Our client Victor Villalobos wants to create an application for people in Mexico to learn about nutritional values and advice. Our client needs a way for actual nutritional scientists to score foods and update advice.

  • Communicating with the client his

  • priorities for each feature

  • Figuring out how to model the

  • database to include ingredients and advice

  • Fixing the UI using bootstrap to

  • make it both user friendly and optimized for mobile use

  • Figuring out how and where to store images

  • Landing page to advertise

  • the product

  • Search engine to look up specific

  • foods and their advice.

  • Sign and login for different users

  • 5 different tiers of users for setting

  • scores, nutritional values, and just

  • browsing data.

  • Includes batch uploading from

  • spreadsheets

  • Food includes pictures, UPC code,

  • 3 different types of advice, and an

  • ingredients list

  • Used Rails to build app and Heroku to

  • run the application


The Educomer Website

We created a website that has a food database listing all ingredients, pictures, and advice added by select nutritional scientists. It is easy to browse through and look for select foods.

Lessons Learned:

  • Set plausible user stories and

  • prioritize most important features

  • Meet with client weekly and make

  • sure we are meeting his requests

  • Double check test cases and make

  • proper tags on github
