While in-person events are a blessing in these times, connecting and socializing with new people at these events can at times be much harder then virtual events where a simple hello in a chat can lead to a world of possibilities. We wanted to bring this one golden aspect of virtual events to in-person ones.
What Ephemerald does
Ephemerald allows users to create, join and discover event-based social networks that are happening in their proximity. ONLY users in the immediate proximity of an event can join the event and take part in it. All networks are ephemeral (temporary) and cease to exist after the event has concluded. Our app uses geofencing to help people interact with nearby events.
How we built it
- Chakra UI
Challenges we ran into
- Creating an intuitive UI
- Smooth visualization of nearby events
- Accurate and precise geofencing ## Accomplishments that we're proud of
What's next for Ephemerald
Expand on our feature sets to offer a "Memorabilia" section for people to collect awards and prizes for attending events.
