Building an Application

Not so long ago, a company came to me with a problem. The company needed a better system to enable its employees to reserve rooms for meetings, conferences, and other functions. The company had about 2,200 employees in four buildings, and it had barely enough meeting rooms, so a room reservation system that operated accurately and smoothly was essential.

For some time, if you wanted to reserve a room, you phoned administration and told them when your meeting was scheduled and where you wanted to hold it. An administrative assistant checked a wall calendar to see whether the room was available on your hoped for date and time, and if it was, you gave the rest of the particulars—what refreshments should be served, whether A/V equipment was needed, what account should be charged, and so on.
