This sophisticated web application, GSU Event Portal, would allow visitors to search for events happening around the city with the ability of paying for interested up-coming event using a debit/credit card. As the name implies, this web application would display tangible information of such event to event goers. The technology behind this application is to make visitors more informative and feature in dynamic events which might be live music, live festivals and many more. On the user interface, visitors should be able to search for up-coming events by city, time and event type. The result of the search would provide all events that will be happening at the specified time based on a visitor’s search criteria. Event organizers would as well be able to advertise their events ahead of time. The web application will be available on any device that could browse with internet connected and will be designed in three consoles: The Organizer console, Admin console and user interface. Organizer console will be able to create and edit events, view registration for an event and verify payments. The Admin console will be able to give permissions to Organizers and visitors, edit user’s profile and delete user account. The User interface console will be available to visitors and users who would like to register for an up-coming event. In addition to that, it will include map functionality that will show the event location on map. Visitors can only view event listings but to participate in an event, registration would be required for allocation of space.
