As part of our final year project for an undergrad in Computer Science at the University of Pretoria, my team and I (Vast Expanse) built both a mobile application and a web server (with admin portal) to facilitate the use of NFC technology for business networking. This project was called Smart-NFC-Card-Applications, and used the NFC capabilities of mobile phones as well as a NodeJS backend server to allow people to share business cards and arrange physical meetings at offices, with NFC used to share and gain access into the buildings. All of the documentation and explanation is available on the GitHub repo, given below.
Below are a few links to the relevant websites and YouTube videos, which were our virtual demo for the project (all of these and more can be found on the GitHub repo):

It was such a cool experience to work with a group of dedicated and hardworking guys, all directed towards a common goal - getting good marks!!! But also to produce quality code, and do some real-life user testing too.
