Description and purpose： Our application is called Rice now which performs a similar function as the Google now by sending user information about career events, school events, piazza posts, and course information. The purpose of this application is to give students easy access to important information that was distributed on different applications. Our structure of our application is a client and server structure which the server gather information from the WWW and the client gets the information through http request from a REST api. Our server uses a distributed structure which means there are multiple programs running simultaneously and could be run in different machines to get information from websites. Then a domain server will be responsible for getting the data from the distributed running services and store them into a non-relational DB thus will be ready to host the service for the client to get. The client will then display the data it received in a decent format which is very easy to use.
