Chapter 18. Building the Meeting Applica... > The “Story” Behind the Meeting Room

The “Story” Behind the Meeting Room

To start, you have to ask the following question: “What is a meeting room?”

In a physical sense, it is a private space where people interact with each other. In today's office environment, someone would have to reserve the room, and the attendees would have to be physically present in the room. You could also expect that someone would be transcribing the minutes, which would be available to the participants afterward. Now compare that process to an online meeting. To start, our room is “logical,” not physical. This means the room is simply an instance of the meeting application that has been given its own little space in memory and on the hard drive. Because the room is logical, it can be designed with enough flexibility that we can create our own rooms online, and we can all meet in those rooms. If we need extra privacy, we can add some programming that would check for “members only.”
