About the project
A social network that keeps you up to date with what's going on around you.
The ViewLay project is a social network (web application) that aims to gather all cultural or social events in one place and inform its users about them.
Culture, social networks
Application and system functions
- Login via email, Facebook, Twitter and Google
- Google Maps integration and quick navigation of current events
- Simple and easy-to-understand environment for adding new posts
- Rating mechanism and peer-to-peer communication environment
- User section with quick overview and profile management tools
The client approached us with the idea of a social network that would quickly and clearly inform users about cultural and social events in their surroundings.
Any registered user can add tips on events, hotels or places of interest in a given city to the app and share them with other visitors.
The aim was to create a handy assistant that can be used not only for planning the evening program in the place of residence, but also as a source of information about current events from locals, for example, on vacation abroad.

ViewLay web application development in 4 steps
As part of the collaboration, we created a simple user interface that provides a clear listing of all current events across the globe.
- We have agreed with the client on the required functionality.
- We did a quick analysis of the UI/UX design proposal that the client presented to us and selected the appropriate technologies.
- We programmed the backend and frontend of the web application.
- We subjected the application to a series of tests to optimize it for various types of devices.
The result is a snappy web application with a responsive design and simple user interface.

The client approached us with a clear idea of a social network focused on cultural and social life. He gave us the already created design of the web application and we could start the technical part of the project - programming the backend and frontend.
Our programmers quickly analyzed the requirements for the functionality and design of the web application and selected the appropriate technologies for its creation. We then put together a frontend and backend team and got to work.
Given the nature of this digital product - a cloud-based web application that is intended to serve as a social network - accessibility and ease of use were top of mind for us.
We made the content of the social network available to both registered and unregistered users through the homepage. Following the UX design and improving the usability of the application, we also added the option to use Facebook, Twitter or Google account to register, in addition to the traditional registration/login via email address.
The ViewLay web application consists of four sections accessible via a navigation bar.
At the heart of it all is a homepage listing current events and places of interest in relation to the user's current location. In addition to the verbal listing, the results are also displayed more clearly on a map, allowing the visitor to quickly find their way around the web application or plan a route.
However, the overview of current events is not limited by the current location of the device. Thanks to the search bar, all information can be displayed for any location in the world.
All embedded events or tips for places of interest can also be viewed via the category listing page.
The next challenge was to prepare the user section and the interface for inserting new posts. In the user section, anyone can edit their profile or find all the embedded posts there.
Inserting new events and tips is possible after the mentioned registration. In addition to adding new content, registered users can also react to each other's events and rate them for accuracy or interest. This rating then influences the position of the added post in the search results.
Last but not least, we have also added the ability to share posts to other social networks, such as Facebook.
