My Father is part of an MBA class. Recently the class got split up into groups for an exercise which is to come up with
a product and to present that product to potential investors ( the professors ) just like in a real business case.
My dad's group came up with the following : iAssist, an app whith which consumers posessing a certain product of a
company can text the companie's service personel whenever they have a problem with the product, so basically an instant messenger between an android phone and a pc.
So he came up to me and told me all about it and asked me if i could develop an App which would roughly demonstrate this concept.
I accepted the challenge.
The problem is, all i know is just some basic Java syntax, no socket programing or anything like that.
well i thought about it and I came up with two options:
1: programing a simple instant messenger (i would probably outsource that)
2: Designing a ICQ client with an iAssist Skin
What do you think ? How much work is it to develop an Instant Messenger like that or how would you demonstrate the concept with an App ?
i have 6 weeks xD
