Lightweight Emergency Notification System

Senior Project: 2007-2008
Karim Elatov, Robert (Bobby) House III, Eric Keary and Daniel McDonald
Westminster, CO

Emergency notification and management systems that target enterprises, municipalities, and large universities have facilities costs on the order of $1 per addressee per year, usually with substantial initial capital investments over and above the facilities cost. These systems are targeted at groups of 20,000 individuals or more. The Lightweight Emergency Notification System (LENS) addresses the underserved low-end market with a product that could be hosted on an existing web server, yet still be able to alert a population via email and SMS as quickly as possible in the event of an emergency.

User interaction is performed through a Web 2.0 GUI, using the Echo 2 framework to generate cross-browser compliant HTML, JavaScript, and CSS from Java. Considerable emphasis was placed on an Agile/XP development process. Many of the cornerstones of Agile/XP were used during the development process, including Test-Driven Development, Pair Programming, and Collective Code Ownership.
