please review my proposal so that i may edit it before
submitting it finally
Please talk to your mentor and he may have different ideas that he is looking
for. A good proposal is a sign of successful collaboration between a mentor
and a mentee.
I have added henne in CC who is your prospective mentor.
All the best, if you have any questions please feel free to ask regarding our

> Proposal for Idea of Event Splash Page for
Organisers & Visitors in OSEM
> Currently, the Open Source Event Management application takes care of all
> possible details about the event such as schedule, registrants,
> volunteers, call-for-papers, rooms, tracks and many more.But these data
> are not displayed properly to the visitors.Clearly, more such features
> could be added for an event as per the need of the admin, but proper
> focus should be given to display the statistics of the event to the
> visitors.This is the key point which decides the success or failure of
> the event. So as per the idea there should be an event splash page
> showcasing all the details like no.of visitors, sponsors,venues details
> with map, speakers with their brief info, keynotes, schedule in the
> chronological order, a small box specifying updates related to the event.
> Also the proposals submitted so far by the registrants should be
> Project Goals:
> First I will aggregate all the event related data in events page, that is
> every event will have a separate page. All the details related to the
> will listed in categorised manner, also the statistics will be maintained
> in the same page about the no.of visitors etc. deciding the how big or
> successful the event will be on the particular day.
> There will be an event splash page for organizers as well so that they can
> keep track of the events and events related activities.
> Then I will work on the HTML & CSS side of it mainly using bootstrap
> framework to make the event page look more presentable, the one on the
> openSUSE Summit page.
> Then there are various design bugs and validations bugs which I am
> currently working on and will try to remove in the future developments of
> the project.
> I will also to integrate metrics using google analytics to find out no.
> of visitors visiting the event page, tracking no. of clicks on various
> links etc.(plugin)
> I will implement real time notifications using socket.io(http web
> sockets),that is using Node.Js and Redis.This will have a admin panel of
> creating notification and the user will recieve notification in a real
> manner just like in Google+ or Facebook without refreshing the page.There
> is this github repository which I will use as reference
> time is left for the event to occur.
> Since the application is using Devise, I will also integrate social login
> using Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.This can done easily because
> the gem has support for multiple carriers and there is only one single
> account for the person.
> Using Twitter integration I will display the tweets that are related to
> event,that is the tweets marked with # tag of the event will be displayed
> in the event page,so that it will give the live stream of what is going
> on in the arena.
> Using facebook open graph integration we can post open graph stories to
> users timeline saying that this person is going to an event, this will be
> great deal of publicity, also using the invite plugin the user can invite
> his/her friends.
> These are some goals which I wish to achieve this summers.These are goals
> are not such that it cannot be met in a span of three months, because
> whatever I have written above I have already implemented in live projects
> and in my own pet project.
> For the first one which is most important, I will create a controller
> called Events which will be outside of admin,as this will be for
> visitors.Now I shall write actions for show(to display the details of the
> event), also an action called event_statistics(to calculate the no.of
> people going for the counter).In the routes.rb I will create a route
> which would be
> events/show/:event_name(event name in parameterized format)/:id .This is
> RESTful routes, in the controller I will query the DB with this event id
> and get data what ever is necessary, the rest is all ruby.And then like
> this other routes will be created respectively for other actions.In the
> view I shall use one single page which will be scrollable and will be
> divided in different sections.In the header there will be tabs to take
> the user to different parts of the page,
> For the second one which is the event splash page for organizers, would be
> same as the but this would be simple in the frontend as this belongs to
> admin panel.Using bootstrap nav tabs there would be several tabs like
> Registrants,tickets,Volunteers,Events and so on.So in the backend there
> would be seperate page for everyone.In the Registrants page there would be
> no. of registrants and no. of attendees.Similarly, there will be events
> containing no. of events submitted,accepted.So I would query the Event and
> related models so as to get all required data in the instance
> variable(@variables) so that thy are available in the front end.Same goes
> for volunteers,tickets and social events tab.
> For implemetation of real time notifications I’ll use the above mentioned
> github repo.Basically, I will use Redis famous feature Publish/Subscribe
> service for sending and recieving notifications.So whenever a user
> registers for an event he/she will be subscribed to the Events_Name
> channel(say).Now whenever a admin needs to notify people, he will create
> a notification and that will be published in the Events_Name channel, so
> by this all the people subscribed to this channel will recieve the
> notification.This will be implemented via sockets using Node.Js, for this
> Node and Redis should be installed in the remote server.
> I can start with Google login.First a google application is needed, this
> generates a api_key and api_secret this is copied in devise.rb.Apart from
> User model we also need an Authorization model which will store the
> details like provider,secret(generated by devise),token received by the
> OAuth and some other details.We would also need the
> omniauth_callbacks_controller which would be inherited from
> Devise::OmniauthCallbacksController and in this the authhash received is
> passed to the user model.Now first there will be a check in
> authorization.rb that auth.provider and auth.uid exists or not using
> first_or_initialize helper .If not then the details are entered in user
> model.Now if the details are incorrect, that is if the validations fail
> we need to save the current_user attributes in a session variable, so
> that the user can re-enter the data missing and proceed accordingly.To do
> this we need to override a class method in user.rb call
> new_with_session(params,session).Now if the session exsists we create a
> new user with the same user attributes and validate this user object.If
> the session doesn’t exsists then we follow the normal devise procedure by
> writing super.
> This thing is simple we just need to create a twitter application and use
> twitter gem to make api calls to twitter open graph to get tweets based on
> hash tags.
> This thing is implemented the same way, we need to make Facebook
> application and ask read write permissions from the user.With the access
> token we receive from Facebook endpoint we use that with Koala gem to api
> calls like put_connections to post to users’ friends timeline.
> For the first 2 features I will complete by June-5 that is around 2 weeks
> to completely wrap up everything related to models and views for event
> splash pages.I would take so much time to figure out and code the front
> end part.
> This thing(user notifications) is already done by me so I will complete
> this within a week around June 13
> Setting up a perfect login without any glitches would consume time so I
> would take around 2 weeks to complete the login flow for all carriers July
> Setting up Facebook and Twitter integration is implemented in the past so
> would complete this by july 7-9 (approx)
> The last 2-3 weeks I would want to polish things of what i have done.Test
> every feature rigorously before it rolls out to be used by users.

which is also in ROR.
