The Activities app is a small application to allow attendees to organize and plan small event in and around a conference. Users create events or sign up to created ones. Signup works through GitHub or Twitter.
The app is mobile friendly and easy to run on a free Heroku account.
The app was created by members on the Ruby Berlin e.V. on their free time as a community effort initially for the eurucamp conference. Ruby Berlin is the body behind RailsGirls Berlin and Hamburg, eurucamp and JRubyConf.eu.
If you end up using the app, please get in contact so that we know. Also, spread the word about our projects. Also, consider donating, especially, if you run a commercial conference. We are a registered non-profit, donations are tax deducible. Betterplace handles all paperwork - if in doubt, send us a mail.
If you cannot or don't want to donate - use it, it's free.
Don't use the Isle of Ruby logo for your instance to avoid confusion.
