On Saturday, September 13, 2014, what will you be doing? Hopefully, you will be eating breakfast, networking, tweeting and preparing for an incredible day of sharing and learning at EdCamp Atlanta 2014, one of the premier educational unconferences in the Southeastern United States. You do not want to miss the talented people, the amazing sessions, and the INCREDIBLE door prizes from our plethora of sponsors!
Showing up is just the first step; any attendee and any Twitter follower for the day will want easy, continual, and mobile access to the stream of information that will be flowing non-stop.
Thanks to Yapp, one of the easiest ways for any educator or educational group to "app yourself," EdCamp Atlanta has for the second year created a cross-platform mobile application that will not only enhance your day at EdCamp Atlanta, but also increase your potential learning throughout the whole year after EdCampATL!
The features available for any app developer using Yapp are versatile and useful. Finally, we are able to follow both @EdCampAtlanta and the #EdCampATL hashtag while also being able to tweet in-app! Also, on the day of the unconference, every session and room location will be posted in the app and also within the app is a "Share" feature in which any attendee can post pictures for everyone to see. Please download our app and share your photos of the day with everyone!
All apps are hosted through an external app called YappBox, available on both the Apple App Store and on Google Play. YappBox is free for everyone and makes updating the EdCamp Atlanta app instantaneous.
To download the YappBox app, visit the Apple App Store or Google Play on your mobile device and download the app. Next, in the menu, you can click "add an app" or navigate to the following web link in order to push the EdCampATL app into your YappBox:
If you are intrigued by both Yapp and the EdCampATL mobile app, our own Cat Flippen will be hosting a 25-minute session on building an educational app with Yapp.
We hope you enjoy our new app! Don't forget to download before the unconference starts, visit the Yapp website, then follow Yapp on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest and let them know you are attending EdCamp Atlanta!
