Java Programming

Java Programming and Software Engineering Fundamentals,

Ever wonder how Netflix decides what movies to recommend for you? Or how Amazon recommends books? We can get a feel for how it works by building a simplified recommender of our own! In this capstone, you will show off your problem solving and Java programming skills by creating recommender systems. You will work with data for movies, including ratings, but the principles involved can easily be adapted to books, restaurants, and more. You will write a program to answer questions about the data, including which items should be recommended to a user based on their ratings of several movies. Given input files on users ratings and movie titles, you will be able to: 1. Read in and parse data into lists and maps; 2. Calculate average ratings; 3. Calculate how similar a given rater is to another user based on ratings; and 4. Recommend movies to a given user based on ratings. 5. Display recommended movies for a given user on a webpage.

make it

The Movie Recommended System may seem challenging as little help is provided to help you make it, but once you finally make it, its one of the best things you can show off.

-teach learners

However, to make it a complete package, I suggest a few things:---Teach learners to use main() to create apps and convert to exe---Teach learners, after the entire project codings, how to create an Applet out of the source codes---Teach learners how to implement graphical user interface (make buttons, input field for movie queries)---Teach learners how to, instead of getting data from a file in the folder, reads the data from a live-feed instead.
