The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and ACM-W chapters at Valparaiso University needed a tool for publishing schedule information and providing digital meeting attendance tracking. An application supporting this need and facilitating communication between current members will be built using the Ionic cross-platform framework, and include a digital forum suite. This will enable users to communicate with each other, improve membership accounting and accountability, and ease of access to organization documents and other materials. To achieve multiple device/platform capabilities, the Ionic frontend is being employed. The Firebase tool was selected to power the backend, as it supports both ease of use and to simplify long term upkeep. A recent change in the related libraries has created some challenges on authentication, and a local secondary system has been employed to support login and identification needs.
