About this project

  • The project in 5 sentences:
    • Events are a major participation and community engine of Mozilla's webmaker efforts.
    • We need a place to track webmaker events worldwide.
    • That enables users to learn about, create, import, sign up for, and leave feedback about events.
    • The site should allow for communication among organizers, participants, and staff.
    • And it should be dead-simple to use.

Uses Supported by v1.0

Find Event

  • See on Front Page --> Click through --> Know what the event is from description --> RSVP (can message hosts) --> Share
  • Search based on type/geography --> View results by Date/Distance --> Pick event --> Know what the event is from description --> RSVP (can msg hosts) --> Share

Desired additional feature: Search event based on keyword in description

Create Event

  • Learn about event types --> Pick Type --> Fill in details --> Publish --> Recruit
    • Agenda design can either happen at "Learn about event types" stage or after "Publish"

Desired additional feature: duplicate past events & address all previous attendees of your events at once

Submit existing Event

  • External event exists --> Provide us with url, event type, date/time, location, description, your email --> Event is published to our calendar
