From my perspective being an engineer doesn’t only mean that we’re continuously trying to create a more professional product, but to somehow make people’s lives easier. Considering this opinion it’s worth mentioning that nowadays internet users are increasing almost as identically as the smartphones spread rate. It means that it’s getting into our lives deeper and deeper with all of its pros and cons. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about every aspect of life. One of the missing fields which we, students experience on a daily basis is the education. Sadly, but our current educational system struggles to keep up with the exponential technology revolution and the generational differences.

In my thesis I tried to find solution for a small part of this huge, global problem which resulted in a community based note editor web application. Using this page students can easily share and edit lecture notes together, meanwhile they’re gaining the useful knowledge and improving themselves. Developing my client-server communication based application, I focused on creating an aesthetic and convenient user interface which in my opinion nowadays is more than required. Beside of that I tried to write a clean and efficiently scalable code which will be easy to maintain in the future.

After all, the final result satisfies my initial requirements, which won’t turn the educational system upside down, yet. But it helped me to discover hidden potentials which would be game-changer in the far future. I believe that sooner or later our education will be able to use the unlimited opportunities which the modern day’s technology can still hold for us.
