PHPCONPL CONFERENCE MOBILE APPS
EVENT / CONFERENCE ORGANIZATION & MANAGEMENT
The mobile conference guide application for Android and Windows Phone devices was developed for the PHPConPL 2014 conference. The event is a social and scientific gathering for PHP programmers which is organised under the supervision of Polish Linux Users Group (PLUG). The conference is, among other things, aimed to integrate PHP developers with business entities to jointly work on commercial projects.
Following the global trend of hosting eco-friendly, mobilized events, the organizers commissioned Selleo to develop a cross-platform solution which facilitates effective event management and feedback gathering as well as supports the participants’ socialization.
The system consists of a CMS admin panel which enables the organizers to enter and manage the information about presentations, workshops, speakers, sponsors and the location; on top of that, two mobile applications display the agenda and allow the users to share the information via social media, comment on and rate individual presentations and workshops. All the data fed from mobile devices are gathered in the CMS to gain a deeper understanding of user behavior and their preferences.
The Android and Windows Phone mobile apps were developed with the Xamarin technology.
We used Ruby on Rails to build the back-end of the apps. Xamarin was a factor behind fast and cost-effective development and deployment of the mobile apps; thanks to the technology used, the solution is also open to an easy addition of iOS and FireFox OS app versions in the future.
