CONFERENCE MANAGEMENT APP
EVENT / CONFERENCE ORGANIZATION & MANAGEMENT
This conference management solution consisting of a suite of mobile applications and cloud-based web Content Management System was implemented to provide a comprehensive digital environment for all the stakeholders of the Data Busters Conference. The dbConf is aimed to gather both open and closed-source SQL (MySQL, Postgres, Firebird, Oracle, MSSQL, DB2) and non-SQL (MongoDB, Apache Hadoop, CouchDB) database specialists. The organizers wanted to improve the way they are managing the event and provide new communication and interaction possibilities to all participants. Implementation of apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices enabled conference organizers to digitally connect all participants and facilitate their engagement through features such as: – social media integration, – ratings and reviews – feedback gathering, – building personalized agenda – accessing various event information. Mobile apps were developed in Xamarin technology which facilitates fast and cost-effective implementation on several popular mobile platforms. The back-end for this solution was developed in Ruby on Rails.
