Nowadays a worldwide challenge manifests’ itself in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The primary determinant of mankind’s’ salubrity is the appropriate nutrition. Taking into consideration today’s diverse nutritional palette infers the necessity of significant attention being even circumstantial the compliance of a healthy diet. Recent studies imply (2014) that the increasing number of obesity presence is higher than the growth rate of global population . In our fast-pace world scarcity of time derives less potential to practice regular sport activities not just for the youth but also for the elder generation.
The objective of my dissertation is the implementation of such an interdisciplinary application system that assists in processing, tracking and monitoring data (activities, diets, weighs) submitted by end users hence facilitating compliance for a healthy lifestyle.
This thesis paper consists of three major parts. The first section describes the establishment of the principal architecture of the application. In fact this required the analysis and understanding of the chapter “Utilized Technologies” for successful development. As a result I have designed the server-side backend part and the connected database schema that serves the different client applications.
The second section represents the inherent part of the thesis; the development of Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 client applications. Consequently it was essential among other things to implement a variety of available services and multifunctional user interfaces. The server part of the application system has been hosted in the last section such a web service in the Microsoft’s’ Cloud platform as the Azure.
In conclusion as a result of my dissertation such an application system has been developed that significantly considers and observes recent, most advanced technologies and presently defined momentous impediment with regards the formation and preservation of a healthy lifestyle.
