When using the internet we encounter more and more services that also have a mobile application. These apps generally provide the user with a more comfortable and easier to use interface than the browser app on a mobile phone. Therefore, many existing services wish to create applications for their users.

In my thesis, I will discuss a specific example of this, in the form of a mobile application I created. First, I expanded a pre-existing student administration portal, created with Django, with a REST API. Then, I created an Android application that used this REST API to allow the user to use some of the functionalities of the administration portal.

At the start of my thesis, I talk about the different technologies and frameworks that the client and the server use, and those that allow them to communicate. Then, I cover the structure of my application from both a user and a programmer point of view. Finally, I discuss the methods used to test the system and the possibilities for any future development of the system.
