The Peanut Gallery
A simple dashboard is provided for a presenter to see a real-time aggregate of thoughts and emotions submitted by audience members. With the ability to vote as an audience member, presenters can see popular and trending ideas and questions in their audience. Numerical and charted views update with responses, indicating whether the audience is feeling lost, content, angry, or a combination of emotional states.
The architecture of Peanut Gallery relies on live event propagation over WebSockets, NodeJS routing, and real-time in memory map-reduce.
