We are 4 developers from Düsseldorf Germany, who also work together on a daily basis. The team consists of 2 backend developers, 1 frontend developer (also skilled in backend) and a dedicated designer (yes you heard right).
Zulu is your calendar for birthdays, vacation, mettings and any other kind of events. Share them with your friends or coworkers and blog about them. Due to integration with all your favorite apps like Outlook, Slack or Twitter you'll never miss an event again.
When it comes to scheduling meetings or events and keeping track of holidays or birthdays, we ran into problems frequently. The invitation to a meeting is sent per mail, the birthday reminder per confluence, other events by a „doodle“ poll (a website link) and holidays were scheduled by PMs.
The idea behind „zulu“ was to create a solution for this managing problem. You can organize and categorize meetings in one tool. It is suited for teams and companies of any size or profession. It should be easy for everyone to add appointments, meetings, birthdays or any other sort of event. Keeping track of these events and managing upcoming ones is the benefit if "zulu". Furthermore you can create own polls, reserve rooms for your meeting and export it to PDF, iCal, JSON or any other format you like.
The best thing about "zulu" is our dedicated apps available for iOS and android. Thus your team will never miss an event again. For even more performance integrate "zulu" with your favorite apps like Jira, Twitter, Slack, Outlook and many more.

Nice work on mobile.
Love the design, especially branding. Login process was a bit rough, but using the app felt great.
Very pretty UI though sometimes clicking the thin event bars was a bit more trouble.
The app looks very nice. Great job!
Everything looks great. The only bug I found was updating my profile gave me an error that my email was already in use. There are a lot of calendars available, but I haven't come across a lot using your tool set. I think redux was an excellent choice since calendars are complicated and redux should give you a sane way to deal with the data. Good use of react portals, too! I think this was a very well done calendar, both in functionality and aesthetics. Good job, guys!
Design - great.
Implementation - great. nitpick - app froze on login screen after registering, refresh fixed it
Product - love color coding the event. nitpick - don’t like extra click/hover to look at the event details, hard to get the full picture at a single glance like i can in GCal.
Idea - really good, next plans should be around integrating it with email systems.
Nicely done, great design!
I like the design a lot, it looks polished, tried using it and was able to create an event, although I would like to see the extra value this app gives users different from other calendar apps
Definitely one of the best-looking entries I've seen thus far. You guys definitely benefited from having a dedicated designer on your team and it's something other teams should really consider in the future (ours included).
In terms of innovation, I can't say this is anything that hasn't been done before, though to the above point not all of them are as clean and well designed.
In terms of utility, you guys definitely hit your mark. It does what it needs to without a lot of frivolous other features that add clutter and complexity.
All in all, a very solid entry. Seeing Babel on your list of technologies also makes me smile as I am a fan of ES6.
Looks like a useful tool for collaborating!
Received an error when logging in.
Wow, slick design. Big thumbs up!
Design is crisp 👌 Calendar apps that unify and collate people's schedules are always useful! :D
I like how the site looks and that it's easy to navigate and create/edit events and teams. I think the integrations is a good idea and having an interactive bot for slack that polls team members to determine the best time to schedule an event would be interesting to see.
Looks like a cool idea, but I wasn't able to login. I tried to create an account with a name and password (50 chars, mix of letters, numbers, and symbols). It appeared that the account was created, but when trying to login, it said "there was an error".
