My book, Designing Data-Intensive Applications, was published by O’Reilly in March 2017.

Purpose of the application is to help people who want to give up smoking. Users can enter the date when they stopped smoking, and get updates on how much money they have saved, display a box on their profile, get support messages etc. The application was launched now because many people try to give up smoking as their new year’s resolution.
The application is hosted on Google App Engine, marking my first real-life use of GAE. It has been a bit frustrating at times, and I may post some more comments about my App Engine experience at some later stage.
