Event Calendar

📅 Final(Capstone) project for Udacity Android Nano Degree

Description

This app aims to provide a boilerplate app for building a simple and robust app as a calendar for your event.

Using the provided JSON file (which can be hosted on your server along with Assets for the event) Event Organizers can manage the content of the App and update it without releasing an update.

After looking at Google I/O app we had inspiration for building the similar app for our university’s Techno-cultural fest. But ran into few hurdles like Time and Resources Required to build a production-ready app that can be used as an Event calendar, an app in which Event organiser can update data without releasing an app update. So I built this, It aims to provide a simple app that can be customized via simple JSON file.
