Project Introduction:

This project aims to stabilise the Eventyay Open Event Project. This includes fixing high priority issues, implementing required features and handling the current deployment of the project.

Work Overview

My work -

  1. Implemented Event Groups feature. Now, similar events can be grouped together. This includes:
    1. A User can create a group of similar types of events. Each group contains multiple events.
    2. Each group must have one owner. But one group can have multiple users with different permissions or roles such as organiser, moderator, etc.
    3. Other users can follow/unfollow a group from the public page of the group.
    4. The owner of group can invite any other user for a particular role, from the group dashboard page.
  2. Implemented Event Announcement feature. The owner of any group can announce any upcoming event of that group and all the followers of that group got an event announcement email.
  3. Implemented Speaker Invite feature. Now any speaker of a session can invite another speaker from CFS page of event. Through this feature, a speaker can invite other speakers to collaborate for a session in an event.
  4. Updated Stripe Checkout from legacy version to new version.
  5. Adhere filters to CSV export of sesion and speakers table.
  6. Restrutured the file structure of groups feature of project.
  7. Implemented sorting by sales and tickets on admin sales table.
