This week I started working on the back end for messaging. I researched how to make real time messaging in the MERN stack and I found out about about pusher which is used to connect your friend end with your database in real time. After finishing the back end routes for messaging and testing pusher with the front end I started working on the front end of messaging. At the end of the week we had a group meetup to see where everyone is and plan what we will do in the week. I decided to finish implementing messages so hopefully by the end of next week messaging will be fully functional on the website.
