A word a day
Architecture Kata “A word a day”
Develop a web based service to get a new foreign language word to learn every day.
Users register with an email address and a timespan. After the user confirmed his registration via a link in an registration email the system will send him a foreign language word to learn every day (Monday … Friday) in the timespan given (e.g. between 9:00 and 11:00 each morning). The email contains the foreign word (or phrase) and its translation, eg.
Subject: Phrase of the day #123
German: Zwei Fliegen mit einer Klappe schlagen
English: to kill two birds with a stone
At the end of the email there is a link to unsubscribe.
Messages will be counted per user (identified by his email address). Each word will only be sent once.
The service offers only one language.
Registration not confirmed within 14 days will be deleted. Links in confirmation emails will become invalid.
The service offers more than one language. Each registration still is for a selected language. The language will be displayed in the subject of the daily emails.
The dictionary of a language may change at any time. This must not lead to repetitions of words in the daily emails.
