Attendees enjoyed using the official WERC Conference mobile app. Besides sharing photos, the conference app allows attendees to research session speakers and descriptions, create an agenda, explore the exhibitor list and floor map, private message other attendees, and (instead of trading business cards) scan badges for post-conference referencing. The goal of the app was to make it an even better conference experience for attendees. From the look of these photos, we think things went pretty well!
