We’ve all been there before–planning a new conference with our co-organizers. Ideas are buzzing around the room. We create ambitious goals for the tools we’ll give our attendees. But we underestimate how much time it takes to set up even the basics. We run out of time and then scramble to find something that works out of the box. In the end, we can’t get it to look right with our conference branding.
In this article, I’ll show you how I used the SlidesUp API to build a custom event app with my branding specs quickly. The API provides an off-the-shelf solution that can power the front-ends for your website, app, and even digital signage. They all stay in sync and get real-time updates as soon as you change your conference data.
On the left below, you can see the SlidesUp app that comes out-of-the-box. On the right, I’ve implemented my own app to match my brand. You can view the code for my version on Github.
Using the SlidesUp API, you can use the same data to build very different front-ends for your event app.
