Presenter: Anton Beza is a UX/IA Engineer at CommerceHub. He has been working with Bugdemic for the past few months and has interests in mobile development, dynamic languages, semantic technologies and artificial creativity.
Bugdemic is a locally-developed mobile web app that let's you create content-carrying "bugs" and automatically share them with people nearby. It's a great way to spread the word about the things you like or discover something new from the people you encounter throughout the day. In this session we'll cover Bugdemic's use of HTML5 location, reverse geocoding, the MVVM framework knockout.js as well as how we used MongoDB to perform spatial queries to carry-out the spreading of the bugs from person to person.
