The Liferay events app allows you to keep up with the latest and greatest activities at Liferay's worldwide conferences and other events. Built on the Liferay Platform, use this powerful tool to plan which sessions you'd like to attend ahead of time, read up on conference presenters and the cool things they've done in the industry, and acquire other attendee contact information as you network. This app will also help you explore the city, from the best places to shop to the finest dining each event venue has to offer.
The detailed agenda allows you to peruse the sessions and their times, along with speaker and session information, and quick links for finding out where the sessions are held. You can even rate individual events in realtime, and take notes during the session using the included note area.
The Contacts screen allows you to keep track of your networking contacts you make at each event. You can manage the list through adding and deleting, and export your contacts to your Android device's contacts list. Some events feature special codes printed on attendee's namebadges - to collect their contacting information, simply click on the scan button and scan their code with your Android device - their information is automatically added!
The Maps area shows you points of interest at or near the event venue, along with handy internal maps showing room layouts and locations. Convenient buttons are provided to allow you to map the location using Google's built-in mapping functions.
Activities shows you interesting things that are happening around and related to each event, such as after-parties, BoF sessions, or other community events.
The Gallery allows attendees to share their photos from the event - you can peruse past and present events, and even upload your own photos by clicking the Library or Camera button.
Finally, the Sponsors area provides links to sponsors and exhibitors at the event - quickly find out which other companies are attending.
Check the app often for new updates - give your Android device a shake - it'll refresh event data!
This app requires the use of several Android features, explained below:
The Liferay Events app has features for saving attendee contact information to your device's contacts list. Contact items are created only, and your personal contacts are never read, modified, or deleted. Android requires the use of the READ_CONTACTS permission in order to write a new contact, which is why this app requests the use of both READ and WRITE permissions.
The Liferay Events app has the ability to upload pictures from your device, and the ability to save others' pictures to your device. The app will never modify or delete a picture from your device.
The Liferay Events app downloads event data over the network for use within the app, requiring the above permissions to access the network. If your device is disconnected from the network, cached data will be used instead (but may be out of date). The app will periodically try to update itself through the network. The app also has the ability to rate sessions, and stores rating information (with no identifying information) on a remote server when a rating is made.
The Liferay Events app supports Liferay's worldwide events. Within the app, you can ask it to automatically choose the closest event based on your current location, by using your device's location sensors using the above permissions. The app also uses Google's Maps API V2, requiring additional permissions like READ_GSERVICES and MAPS_RECEIVE.
