Talks.Tokyo

This projects is aimed at developing a system that makes organizing, managing, and sharing seminars (talks) easy.

This project is based on Talks.Cam. The source code was kindly provided by Center for Applied Research in Education Technologies (CARET), University of Cambridge through the svn repository.

Current status

Now it runs on the latest versions of rails 3.2.8 and ruby 1.9.3. However there are still many parts that depend on legacy codes. A new feature that enables adding a talk by just copy & paste is implemented. A more modern design with dropdown menus and calendar based on jQuery and Twitter Bootstrap.
