Dashboard Improvements For WCUS


nov-29-2016-10-15-49For a long time, the dashboard page for conferencia has been merely a placeholder. Not worth anyone’s time of day.

That changes this week and weekend, as WordCamp US (and other conferences/meetups around it) happens. You can now watch the dashboard live as certain events play over the next few days. The most trending events will be on the dashboard – so if you want to see media for a concluded event you might have to check out that event’s actual page (check out the event page for the links).

So far, we are hoping to monitor:

– Tweet photos
– Tweet videos
– Periscopes
– Instagram Photos
– Instagram Videos

Another special feature – we are including photos from photographers that post directly to conferencia! That means hopefully there will be interesting photos and ANIMATED GIFS (yippie!) that you won’t see anywhere else.

We are expecting a “wrapping up” update tomorrow, but wanted to get this out today to make our friends aware!

Note: Dashboard page will likely be tweaked up through Wednesday. But should be good to go Thursday morning.

WordCamp US 2016 Check-In


screenshot-2016-11-28-12-25-58We’ve been quiet for a while, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! WordCamp US 2016 is happening this week and along with it events orbiting it like Post Status Publish and varies parties and meetups. Therefore we are throwing out a beta “checkin” page devoted to make checking into these with your conferencia¬†account as quick as a few seconds. Even if you don’t have an account, you can just tap a social network (or you can register the old fashion way by clicking on our register link).

Here’s the customized register link:
https://conferencia.io/register/?checkin=wcus

Why checkin? Let people know you showed up – and you can find that person you met (but didn’t get a name for). This is all beta on our side because we are just beginning to expand monitoring conferences to include the meetups/parties of those conferences as well. It’s going to be fun!

We are also going to be updating shortly on some other polished items… so another update in the next 24 hours!

Feel free to contact us with questions or if you see a bug.
