Implementation

Now that we have completed the planning and design phase, we are currently working on implementing our prototype and integrating it within PeterPortal. The application will be built with React.js along with React DnD and the PeterPortal API. We aim to develop a MVP (minimum viable product) within the upcoming weeks, and continue to come up with new ideas for the system.
