Wheres that conference room again?

May 01, 2020

You know the feeling. A notification pops up for a meeting that starts in 1 minute. The meeting room has some bizarre name — you’re positive you’ve seen it before — yet you have no idea where it is. Time to panic!

We’ve all been there. This happened to me so many times when I worked at Braintree that I decided to do something about it. Here’s the ideal workflow:

  • slack notification for a meeting comes in
  • you have no idea where the room is
  • you type right in Slack: /wheres Millennium Park or whatever your conference room is named
  • it shows you a map
  • you get to your meeting on time!

I did the majority of the work for this project a few months ago, but I didn’t have time to do a proper writeup, or even a launch for that matter.
