Remember the Oracle Mobile Challenge at OpenWorld 2016? Well, it looks like a good idea is worth duplicating. Our friends over at Avanttic created a similar app using Oracle Mobile Cloud Service - but instead of using Oracle MAF as the client, they decided to use Oracle JET. This was developed for the Oracle Digital Day 2016 that took place recently in Madrid. Unlike the Mobile Challenge app used at OpenWorld, they tweaked the game to encourage visiting specific booths, tweeting with specific hashtags and meeting specific experts. The app used Estimote beacons to leverage the new location services in Oracle MCS and a web dashboard to display some analytics about the location of the attendees and to give away the prizes.
According to the Avanttic team:
"The backend is fully made with Oracle MCS, storing the data in MCS db and using analytics. We also used some node modules like twitter to track tweets and then we cache them and evaluate the hashtags to know if the user completed the challenge. It was a total success!"
"The cool thing about the development is that we made the whole application and the backend in just 3 weeks (it was after work, so we just spent like 2-3 hours a day)"
What do we say about Oracle Mobile? Build better apps faster! Say it with me and hallelujah mobile brothers and sisters! Build better apps faster!
Some screenshots are attached but you can also download the app from apple store and google play store in this links:
