TEDX Culver City

For their inaugural conference in 2013 the organizers of TedX Culver city were looking to save some paper and have their conference guide available via a mobile application. We designed and built a re-useable mobile application for iOS and mobile web browsers that updated seamlessly from year to year—and we installed mobile tablet kiosks onsite at the conference to allow attendees to browse the talks during the event. Attendees were thrilled about the greener solution and the easy accessibility of speaker bios and schedules.

For their inaugural conference in 2013 the organizers of TedX Culver city were looking to save some paper and have their conference guide available via a mobile application. Moonfarmer partner emeritus David Resnick shared an LA office with the TedXCC team and suggested that we complete a sponsorship initiative by developing that application. The TedXCC project was born.

To meet the needs of the projects, we completed the development of an MVP conference listing application consisting of three parts. First, a simple, updatable API listing of speakers, talks and images using Ruby on Rails and backed by CouchDB to provide an easy to update store of JSON data. Second, an iOS client application that is installable via the iOS app store, comes preloaded with each talk and can automatically update as conference content changes in real time. And third, a JavaScript MVC application for Android, Windows Mobile, or whatever your flavor of mobile device might be.

Additionally, we helped install and setup mobile tablet Kiosks onsite at the conference to allow attendees to browse the talks during the event. TEDxCC Founding Producer, Marie Bobin was thrilled with the outcomes. "Our attendees loved that we decided to have a completely paperless event. The app was not only a greener solution, it also made information such as speaker bios and schedules more easily accessible."

The project was successful and in 2015 we pushed an update to the app to bring it in line with iOS 8 standards and repeat the success of the original 2013 conference. The two year old app updated beautifully and even existing users who had installed the original version two years prior had a seamless content update experience when they launched the app in 2015.

"Working with EMN has been a wonderful experience for TEDx Culver City. I cannot recommend their work enough." Marie Bobin, TEDxCC Founding Producer

Feel free to check out the app in the iOS store and if you are the organizer of a TedX or other conference, we'd love for you to get in touch with us.
