Gigastrand OS Powers SkepDakota Conference
SkepDakota conference took place August 29th, 2015 and broke attendance records for a conference of that type in South Dakota. Technology from Gigastrand powered everything from ticket sales to video conferencing.
"The conference organizers used a Chromebook, there were a few Macs and one Windows PC." Gigastrand founder and SkepDakota technologist Josh Tordsen explains."We provided an Android tablet and Square reader for the box office. Everything else at the center of the conference ran through the Gigastrand OS"
One of the speakers needed to teleconference in. Using a Gigastrand OS laptop the speaker was able to speak using Google Hangouts.
"We did have some kind of mic issue, however, we were able to bring her in anyway. We took video of the speakers at the conference and will be processing the video using the Gigastrand OS using OpenShot. It was a great test for our software."
The version used at the conference was Gigastrand OS v2.2. Gigastrand OS v3.0 was released September 1st.
