EVENT MANAGEMENT APP
EVENT / CONFERENCE ORGANIZATION & MANAGEMENT
The IT Academic Day (ITAD) is a series of technology conferences organized at some of the best universities in Poland by students .NET and IT research groups which are supported by Microsoft. The aim of the conferences is to promote new tools and languages among the students interested in Microsoft technologies. We have developed a suite of mobile apps for Windows Phone and Android devices to facilitate the ITAD event organized by the student research group RESET at the University of Bielsko-Biala. The solution enables organizers to update the conference agenda on-the-fly, gather feedback and share information about the speakers. The mobile apps allow participants to review the information about the event, rate presentations and provide feedback about speeches, thus helping the organizers to understand their event better and identify room for improvements in the future. We used the Xamarin technology to developed a set of mobile apps for Windows Phone and Android devices. The back-end of the apps was developed in Ruby on Rails.
