eventjes

After the Cambridge Analytica scandal many people wanted to quit Facebook. However, many of them felt forced to stay because they were dependant on it for events and parties. They would miss one place where they could find all the upcoming events of their favorite venues, because they don’t want to spend a long time visiting all the individual websites. This causes people to stay on Facebook unwillingly, or to become somewhat socially isolated when they leave.

Eventjes solves this problem. Users can simply input the event webpages of their favorite organizers, and the application scrapes the events from the HTML using regular expressions. This provides users with a handy overview of events that they might be interested in, with an additional list where they can view their favorite events that they have saved.
