How does the web app look and feel to use?

Conferences may be browsed by year, topic, and country. Members may also use the search box.

Similar to a wiki, users can add conferences. Website, conference name, tagline, location, start and end dates, Twitter hashtags, and Twitter accounts are all requested.

Speakers, Attendees, and those who wish to track the conference can all do so within the interface. Users can view trending topics, books by conference presenters, and more.

There is no formal registration. Users must sign in with an active Twitter account. Once connected, users must approve access to their Twitter accounts for Lanyrd. This immediately logs the user into the site.
