Minutes of our 1st meeting with Jean-Yves Martin – Sharing Platform – 12/03/14

The agenda was the database architecture, although we also discussed other technical (and non-technical) issues. This two hour meeting was particularly rich, so here is only a brief summary of the main points:

1) The database architecture: we had a first version of this architecture, JY Martin answered our questions and helped us improve it.

2) We need to decide whether we will use a PHP framework or a Java framework. What resulted of the meeting is that there are a lot of various factors: communication with database, debugging, available modules, server providers, community contributions, time we will have to invest to learn it, etc. We have to choose the best solution regarding our constraints.

3) The idea of allowing users to grade each other may be very complicated from a legal point of view, we will have to talk with Morgan Magnin.

4) To easily manage rights, JY Martin advised to create a table in the database assessing users profiles (simple user, moderator, administrator, …) and the rights/interdictions associated.
