    Abstract

    In today’s age people are becoming busier and therefore have an increasing amount of information that they need to remember about the tasks they need to perform. Without a helping hand people can easily become overwhelmed with too much information and important facts can become forgotten about. This report first looks into the software tools that are currently available to help user’s mange their tasks. After analysis it was found that the tools currently available have too many pitfalls and were not suitable for the authors needs. A discussion of the requirements for the project follows which would meet the author’s current needs as well as being designed in such a way that it could easily be extended. The reader is lead through the design and implementation decisions and interesting problems encountered during development of the artefact. Finally the report ends with a critical evaluation of how successful the project was as well as a look into the future for the project. To develop the system some of the latest Microsoft technologies were used including the .NET 3.5 and ASP.NET MVC 2 frameworks. To aid development some third party open source solutions were also implemented, including AutoMapper’s object to object mapper and Ninject’s dependency injection framework. Rather than focusing on developing a single complete front end web application the project ended up shifting focus. Instead, a dynamic back end system was created that can support multiple front end applications, which can be written by other developers as part of future projects.
