improve the communications situation

use cases

The most critical use cases are in my opinion:

tickets are availible for sale

time critical informations before the event

food is ready

time critical informations on the event

how do we improve the Sinclair C5

not time critical discussions

possible solutions

In both cases time for communication is critical. I have been considering

  • improve the use of existing and already used tools
  • agree on one chat tool that everyone uses
  • build an app for android and iphone to push info on people's phones
  • push text messages
  • your idea here....?

mobile app

  • needs to be availible for android and ios
  • just a mobile app with MQTT that connects to a MQTT server and subscribes to the relay. the relay can send messages out to every subscriber, the app will show them as push notification
  • would be nice if the app app is availible in the app stores.
  • the app should be less than 10mb in size (that way people will not remove it to regain space)
  • the app should be as simple as possible (autostart on reboot of the phone, just shows a screen with recent messages)
  • The app could be a Web-App as well, that way we would have all logic on the server and the app really just pushes the notifications and is a quick-link to recent messages.


use a chat solution

  • There are a lot of chat solution that can be scripted
  • Don't invent the wheel again
  • Probably use a notify group in jabber matrix .... that is splittend from normal channels for better filtering an notification
