Create a Facebook-like application within a week

・1 min read

Scenario

The iBanker boss in Hong Kong requests you to create a Facebook-like application within a week. The application should have iOS, Android and Web version. You will gain HK$5000 after the application is fully completed so that the iBanker boss can present the idea to Innovation and Technology Bureau of Hong Kong insists to get the HK$3,000,000 funding.

What tech stack will you use?

DISCUSSION (2)
 

Rails with devise for user management.

SendGrid or similar for handling outgoing email.

The iOS and Android apps would just be a web view.

If I'm getting HK$5000 and they're getting HK$3,000,000, I'll let them worry about making it scale. ;)

 

I wouldn't. There's no reason (today) that a facebook like service needs a dedicated native app for android and ios. A website will suffice.

Could you explain #likeimfive the meaning of these programming languages as humans?
