Really nice... Big Like, i think that can fix many many problems.

So I guess this covers promoting needed patches for Flow and Phoenix.

This is a rather huge budget, but I do like this, because if covers the whole management for microsites within a Phoenix website, including needed management modules - something that is a bit missing in TYPO3 CMS.

The requirement would of course be that the whole development happens on a public basis.

Of course. The plan is to work very closely with the Flow / Phoenix team.

Another "Of course". Even if it is not stated in the budget application. The complete development will be publicly available on forge.typo3.org.

Just to get the whole picture: If someone plans to organize an official event like the T3DD13 - are you (after approving the budget) completely responsible for the corresponding website, like setup of the site itself, managing user rights, setup modules like "call for papers", "ticket sales", ... and the organiser just put into the content?

More or less. I want to build a system where someone (e.g. the Event Committee) can do exactly what you described. Set up a new event websites with all necessary modules with a reasonable timeframe. It will provide all the mandatory things we need for every event. Like schedule, Call for papers, etc. It should somehow integrate with the existing shop but that is probably just a link as we have a working ticket sales tool. I want it to be easy, simple and well documented so it does not depend on single people.

The final goal is a ready-to-rock installation where all (official) events will be running on.

And yes, in an ideal world (and perfect outcome of this project) the organizers will only have to put in their content.

How about optionally unofficial events like TYPO3 Camps? They currently also rely on amiando etc...

How do you handle different styling, if that's an option at all? Possibly official events get the same layout / branding, it wouldn't be the case for camps. (Just ideas, not sure what you have in mind)

Well, in this first project I'd like to concentrate on the official events. I don't say no to including all sorts of events in the future but I'd like to keep it simple for the start.
About the styling. It should obviously possible that every event site will have it's own template and therefore it's own CI.

FYI: We'd like to integrate the community organized events more in the future. This is covered in the event committee budget, though.

Hi Thomas,

as we talked before I like the idea, that someone is responsible for the sites.
But I think the money shouldn't be invest in the technik. Lets think about using
www.conftool.net as base system for alle events. It can be used for kind of conferences and the price is fair.

I talked to the owner and we can contact him to implement some SSO solutions and other special thinks.

Greetings Volker

Hello, I checked these problems and really in favor to make a great customer experience during acquiring event or meeting management. Conftool is good and OWPM http://www.owpm.com is also one great alternate with effective system and software solutions.

Kathryn
