The perils of business networking! When attending conferences and meetups there are times when we find ourselves forced into irrelevant discussion while just a few metres away there could be someone you could be doing business with.
Handshake is a prototype of a cross-platform mobile app that solves this problem. It allows everyone to get the most out of networking events.
Whilst we concluded that Handshake will mostly be used on mobile, using available web technologies combined with a cross platform approach from the start allowed us to cater for all different mobile devices without a need for separate native apps.
With a number of different devices used by networkers, a cross-platform approach is the right solution. iOS and Android owners can both use Handshake therefore no one at the event is left out.
