Here is my project idea...

Room/Resource Reservations System

We have a breakout/study/practice room reservation system that we are rebuilding to make it more mobile friendly.

It is for reserving a resource, like a study room, that is needs to be limited in some way.
* Only available during open hours
* We want to discourage hoarding the resource, we don't want people reserving and then not using it
* We don't want people reserving and canceling reservations at the last minute (or same calendar day)
* We want administrative views and overrides for resources and reservations

Our current design uses a set of google calendars as a back end. So that reservations appear on the creators gmail calendar.

It is mobile focused, but scales up pretty well also to the desktop experience.
We also have the start of a very rudementary iOS app developed for the system.

We have a basic kanban board that we started out brainstorming with on trello
