Tadej Abina (2012) Development of a web application for organisation of events. EngD thesis.
Event organization is a fast developing field that has especially been rising in the modern times, even though it has been around for a long time. Special events have always played a leading role in breaking the monotomy of everyday life and have therefore become a significant part of every society. Fast technological advancement has introduced new possibilites for event organization, but also increased the wishes and expectations of people. This document includes an overview of the event organization area with it's good and bad sides. It describes the categories and different characteristics of events, that need to be taken into account when organizing one. It defines different terms that we are to encounter when dealing with events and answers questions that are important, if we want to guarantee a successful one. We take a look at the legal side of the issue, which presents the needed permitions, demands and limitations. The thesis then describes the application, which is meant to make the event organization tasks easier. The web application supports the multilanguage feature and provides means of email notifications for users. It enables the users to store vital information about the artists, venues and advertisement options in one place. It lets us list and edit all the entities that will be incuded in the production aspect of the event. It also serves as a place where we can gather links to all the necessary documentation (contracts, permits, ...) and let's us organize tasks using the reminders the application provides. Finally, we take a look at the technical views of the implementation. We used programming tools and principles that will guarantee long term possibilites for maintenance and upgrades. This will ensure our application can adjust to the changes in the field of event organization.
