DjangoCon 2017 App - Powered by Guidebook

Guidebook is thrilled to power the DjangoCon US 2017 conference app! We are particularly excited because our Guidebook engineering team is proud to use Django to power our backend stack. We appreciate Django’s detailed documentation, and the active community of developers that improve Django every day. We’ve been on Django since about 0.9, and are looking forward to many more productive years with its ever improving tool kit.

What is Guidebook? Guidebook is a simple yet powerful mobile application builder that lets you create an app in four easy steps — no technical skills required. Just choose from a gallery of mobile app templates, select your features, and fill it with content. Then publish in minutes to Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Guidebook apps provide a best-in-class experience for users. Modern layout and features mean navigation is a breeze. An interactive social field provides a central place for event attendees to discover content, share photos, and engage in discussion. Real-time updates allow users to receive notifications directly to their home screens during events—even if the app isn’t active.

Guidebook can be used to build guides for a wide variety of organizations such as:

  • University of Oregon’s Mobile Campus Tour

    • Admissions staff provide prospective students an app-powered campus tour option. It includes GPS guidance to the next POI on campus, audio narration in the words of a student ambassador, and customizable interest form that captures prospective students right when they’re most interested.
  • Oculus Connect developer conference

    • Event managers at the virtual reality company used Guidebook to create an exceptional user experience at their conference. The app includes beautifully detailed speaker bios with photos, detailed demo sessions with capped attendance, and an attendee engagement platform with built-in networking.
  • Computer History Museum app

    • Docents at the world’s largest collection of computer artifacts provide visitors with a handheld guide. Their app includes an RSS feed that pulls in blog articles about museum business, easy-to-navigate maps that walk visitors through galleries, and personalized to-do lists that allows users to list and check off their favorite exhibits.
