EatAtPR – Project Phase 1 Group Members: Gabriel Martinez Erik Santiago Alberto Espada September 23, 2010 I C O M 5 0 1 6 -­ 0 3 6 ‘10 Phase 1
Proposed Projects:
1. “DormRUM” – Gabriel Martinez
Gabriel’s idea came from the hassle that is finding appropriate housing when starting college, and
moving while in college. DormRUM would provide a listing where students can find housing they
can afford and better fit their needs.
2. “eJunk” – Alberto Espada
Alberto was motivated to build this project because it would be nice to have an electronic way to see
what parts or cars are available at Junkers without the need to go physically to the Junker to look for
the part. Every Junker would be able to upload parts, or cars with pictures and prices for their
inventory. It would be like an auto part online but for used (junk) parts.
3. “Route” – Erik Santiago
Recently, Erik was planning on traveling throughout the East Coast of the United States.
He did his reservation with Travelocity, but kept in mind how useful it could be to build a system
used for tailoring trips to users’ needs.
Our Project:
“EatAtPR: Puerto Rico Restaurants”
As suggested, we will work to build a web-based system in which users will be able to search
restaurants using various criteria. Site visitors will have the option to rate restaurants they have
visited recently using a custom rate system. They will also be able to write a review/comment on
their visit to any particular restaurant. Users will be able to see other users’ comments and ratings
and look for the top rating restaurants. Lastly, Restaurant owners will have the option to register
their restaurant for users to view and rate.

discussed.

available.
The site clearly has issues
moderating posts.
