An open source app for DrupalCon Prague

DrupalCon Prague is approaching fast. In a few days, Drupal folks from all over the world will gather together in Prague to sprint, attend sessions, have fun etc. A few days ago, I was searching to see whether there was a mobile application available and turns out it wasn't. So me and a friend volunteered to create one based on the DrupalCamp app we've created a few weeks ago. They might be basic, but they do the job fine when you quickly want to check the schedule of the whole week.

The apps will be available for Android and iOS. The Android version is available on Play Store, the iOS version is currently in review, so fingers crossed!

Features include:

  • Built with speed in mind: native app
  • Works offline
  • Sessions and speakers
  • Create your schedule
    Note, does not sync with your account.
  • Maps integration when online

Collaborate

The code is available on GitHub, so anyone can easily send in bug reports, interface translations or create pull requests to make the applications even better. You can of course reuse and/or extend the code for future DrupalCons.

Proudly built by @swentel, @TimLeytens and @leenvs.

Why you should come to DrupalCon Prague

First of all: I'm a featured speaker. I'll be hosting a session called 'Drupal 8 for Site Builders'. Come and watch to get an overview of all the wonders and power Drupal 8 has for creating a site. However, there are other reasons to attend DrupalCon Prague, and they are not Drupal related at all.

Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora is a little town, about 80 kilometers away from Prague, world known for its Sedlec ossuary which contains a lot of human bones, used for decorating the inside. While this may sound luguber, a visit to this small chapel is not something you will ever forget. And if you don't go inside, the top of the chapel has a skull, they really thought about everything. The easiest way to get there is by train and even arriving in the small station is worth travelling. I have seen it already, but will be going again, so feel free to join me.

CERN opendays

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is opening its doors on 28th and 29th of september for the public for it so called CERN opendays. CERN lies in Geneva, Switserland, about 8 hours driving from Prague, or maybe 1 hour flying by plane. You'll be able to go down 100 meters underground and look at the Large Hadron collider and all other amazingly cool experiments scientists and engineers perform. Unless you are Daniel "dawehner" Wehner, you don't get that many chances to visit this place in your lifetime, especially since they only open it up publicly every 4 years. Tickets are for sale starting August, so keep an eye on the website if you want to go. That means I won't be attending the post-sprints, but honestly, I can live with that.
