Scheduling Should Be Easier

As some of you know, I’ve been writing an ongoing series about startups for Envato Tuts+ about a new scheduling service. Meeting Planner is now in its preview release.

My goal is to make scheduling a meeting or social get togethers fast, easy and simple as it should be. I very much want Meeting Planner to cut down on the often tiresome unnecessarily lengthy email threads about choosing dates and times, places and rescheduling that accompany trying to meet people in real life.

Meeting Planner supports both 1:1 meet ups as well as larger group meetings. I hope you’ll give it a try. Schedule a meeting and share any feedback you have with me at our support site. Or, tweet @reifman. I very much appreciate the help getting the word out and telling me how to make it better.

Meeting Planner is written in the Yii Framework for PHP, not as hip as Laravel, but meeting my needs just as well (or when Laravel was young, better). You can learn about Yii2 in my other programming series at Envato Tuts+. And, feel free to post questions about the development of Meeting Planner within individual tutorials.

The Meeting Planner startup series is scheduled to continue weekly (or more than weekly) through Q1 next year. Some of the coolest episodes coming up walk through the group scheduling features as well as the myth of the one person startup — Meeting Planner wouldn’t exist without a ton of open source projects from Apache to Yii. I’m also beginning to explore crowdfunding — follow Meeting Planner’s WeFunder page.
