I am Bhargav, a Computer Science undergraduate student from BITS-Pilani,
India. I am an avid mobile app developer. I worked on Phonegap apps during
GSoC 2012 with Apache Software Foundation and have developed many Windows
Phone apps. I am also well versed with native android app development. I
have developed an Android app for Exotel Techcom Pvt. Ltd. and it is
being used by its clientele of over 2000 firms. My github account will
provide much more details about my developer expertise.
In my search to find an organization that has challenging problem
statements in Mobile application areas, I found Pidgin and was very much
interested in the this project which requires a mobile app that acts as a
remote controller to desktop client. While I was trying to come up with a
feasible solution and plan to write a good proposal, I got a few questions.
- From my experience with GCM, there has to be a database maintained
with userID mapped with registrationID which is specific to Android device.
This means that I need to edit the server to expose an API to save
registrationID, send GCM message and then build an android application. Is
my approach correct?
- Should the user be able to reply to messages also?
I would be very much obliged if I am provided with answers to these
questions and whatever questions that may arise in future as they will help
me in writing a good proposal and in turn get chosen to Pidgin.
