Connecting people seamlessly
Hackathons, conferences and other networking events have grown exponentially across the years. This is primarily because people have come to understand the huge benefits in creating and establishing connections with other people to solve mutual problems and thus benefit from each other. The initial focus of establishing communication between 2 strangers is either by exchanging business cards or by typing frantically the other person's contact details into their mobile phone. This process is not quick and takes time to jot down information. Using business cards costs money, is a waste of paper and is only good till the details are saved to an electronic format. If this step can be omitted, then it is eco-friendly and information becomes easily available. One solution is to encode information in QR codes and then use the mobile camera to read the information. Simplifying the user workflow and reducing the friction would be the right way to increase user adoption.
