Project's Requirements

Tasks And Features

Enhance visitor experience

We have several ideas to enhance the visitor experience. First of all, the event schedule isn't mobile friendly and and there is no way to have several schedule proposals to compare before releasing it (see #18 & #587). Furthermore we would to gather feedback from the conference visitors (see #549) and improve our conference splash page (#400).

Implement ticket payment feature

OSEM already has a feature to sell conference tickets. At the moment the user has to buy the ticket online and pay on arrival at the conference. We would like to have a way to purchase and pay online.
