DEMOGala was an annual event put on by the Colorado Technology Association, which Planet Telex is proud to be a member and sponsor of. The event featured talks, keynotes, and technology demos and presented an excellent networking opportunity to technology companies in Colorado.
Planet Telex designed and built a website for the event beginning in 2008. We have added features and revised the design a little every year to keep it fresh and different. The site featured the event's schedule, speakers, and exhibitors. Since the content needed to be administratable by the association, Planet Telex built a custom ASP.NET MVC application that built out pages according to a strict template. This meant it would continue to look good while being maintained by a non-technical resource.
To quickly facilitate the administration of the custom database, we used Microsoft's Dynamic Data. Not only did this make site administration easy, but it evolved with the event itself, which underwent yearly revisions in formats and features.
