Great Webinar! Learned more about iBeacon Technology in one hour than I did in 4 hours googling coming home from a conference. Looking for new technology to inform citizens of events at local parks/centers. I may have found it #iBeaconWebinar
I think I'm glad to be compared favorably to four hours of Google!
It seems like what you want to do is pretty straightforward. Place iBeacons in parks or other public centers, and use those iBeacons to trigger an app to pull down information on events from a web service. This should be pretty straightforward, and would help people engage with the parks and realize all of the neat stuff you have going on. Unlike many other applications we discussed on the webinar, this probably demands somewhat long-range beacons given the size of a typical park.
