A Conference Networking Interactive Web App

The prototype demonstrates the concept of how conference attendees may enhance getting together for activities at an event. Whenever one user creates or responds to a meet, all users instantly see the update without refreshing their browsers.

In this live application, it shows that it is possible to use a modern, instantly-updating framework to help to organize meetings and conferences.

Advantages are:

  • Real-time display of created meets
  • Real-time display of who is going to a meet or not
  • Private meetings supported with email invitation
  • Helps conference goers find people and activities because of its inherent map interface

This example has the potential the basis of an open-source project. Its code is at . 

Future possible enhancements:

  • Administration view
  • Replace double-click behavior for touch devices
  • LinkedIn / Google Plus logins and avatars
  • Rich text in the meets’ descriptions
  • Improved responsiveness in all browser sizes and orientations
  • Text labels / logos for the meet icons
  • Enhanced CRUD (create, read, update and delete) database functions for meets
  • Calendar / time integration
  • Changeable background maps
  • Display warning if not JavaScript not on
  • Add more mobile features like geolocation, wayfinding, and notifications
