Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007>p>Lindsey Simon let us know about the 2008 SXSW Interactive Panel Picker that was made public for the conference.
SXSW was deluged with great ideas this year, so it’s been turned into a full blown app with sign in and comments on the panels. The backend was done with CakePHP and the frontend uses jQuery for XHR and behavior enhancements.
Maybe BarCamp will have this instead of the paper on walls model….. or maybe not.
Lindsey also said, “As imitation is one of the truest forms of flattery (and makes for some mighty rapid visual design), the panel picker was made to look like my current favorite email program.”
