shdlr.com wants to be the easiest conference schedule software/app, using at the same time other type of software like .net cms, as well. Continuing with the iteration of features we have added some new features and tweaks
The biggest re-factor was adding Speaker profiles, For the more technically inclined we have coded speakers as “has and belongs to many” talks. The UI for adding speakers to a talk has been kept as simple as possible, in fact it is very similar to adding recipients to mails in popular web-based mail apps. This re-factor also added vanity urls for the speakers, taking an example from the demo: http://demo.shdlr.com/speaker/tariquesani
Since we have speaker profiles we have given the conference admins an easy way to see speaker lists and export them as csv. The speakers can be filtered by speakers with selected talks, scheduled talks and a couple of more. This we see as being very useful for contacting speakers during various stages of talk selection.
For conferences with a large number of talks it is easier to select talks and then schdule them later. Ability to short list talks and publish them as a list of selected talk has been added
Even in a connected world there is a demand for offline/downloadable formats. As a starter, we have added download pdf of the schedule grid, More file and other schedule formats will be added soon.
Getting a great logo for your business is very important—it is the face of your brand, after all. The good thing about making a logo: you have options. The bad: many of these are expensive, especially if you’re an entrepreneur just starting out.
There are certain symbols that come to represent particular industries or products. For example, how many pizza places have you seen with a logo that features an Italian, mustachioed chef with a tall white hat and a wide grin? Maybe holding a ridiculously huge pizza? A good logo reflects who you are, but it should also distinguish you from everybody else. A good logo should dare to be different.
Finally, the most important thing is to find a professional to help you deal with creating the logo, you can find it here DesignRush.com and manage your site and marketing tools. There are web or mobile applications that help you design your own logo. The design options and customizability are limited, therefore results are not differentiated, but you can still get an acceptable logo once you find the right app. Most importantly, this comes at a price point that is affordable even with the most shoestring of budgets.
We truly feel that we were able to get what we wanted with this logo!
