BSides Nashville: There is an app for that!
Looks like the founders of BSides Nashville have kicked it up a notch (again!). Today in the Twitterverse I noticed they were pushing an app that enables con-goers to carry their program on their cellphone. Check out the tweet:
After downloading the Eventjoy app I was able to see maps of the con, the speaker list, speaker bios, sponsor information, and notifications (as well as other things). The coolest thing about the app was the ability to build "My Agenda" from the "Schedule" menu with a simple click.
The app rocks and BSides Nashville should be commended on having the foresight to use it.
Which begs the question, why aren't more cons using these kind of tools to enhance the con experience?
