You now have a commit bit.

Also, I've been adding historical information to the calendar to. I
haven't gone through you're complete history yet, but I've been slowly
adding things.

If conference organizers want access too, they just need to let me
know. :)

 Well, that's what I've been doing with The Perl Review Community
 Calendar for a couple of years:
 
 http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=ngctmrd1cac35061mrjt3hpgng%40gr
 oup.calendar.google.com

OK, so there is some duplication of effort. I'm not surprised. :-)
My data comes from my desire to get exhausitive conference data (including
some Act-related info), so I'm sure there is some data you have and I
don't, and vice-versa.

Of course, I understand that from a community point of view, it's better
to advertise a single authoritative calendar. The one I made scratched
my own itch, and I thought I might as well share it.

 It's the same feed that TPF uses on YAPC.org. You can get the data in
 all sorts of ways, and it has ICS feeds. It shows up in my calendar
 applications just fine. :)

I'd be interested to learn how to do that (and how YAPC.org does get
the information). I suppose there is some sort of XML export format?
I can't find a way to get to it from the embed URL.

Thanks.

The code that creates yapc.org is hosted in google code. The script 
you're probably interested in is this one:


http://tpf.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/yapc/yapc_org/bin/extract_cal_events.pl

You can poke around the project to find the other code. Let me know if 
you have any questions.

An iCalendar for all Perl events

2009-01-02 Thread Philippe Bruhat (BooK)
Wondering when the next Perl event is? Wouldn't it be nice if the
information was automatically available in your calendar?

Cry no more, for I have setup an iCalendar file holding all the Perl
events (conferences, workshops, hackathons) for which I have enough date
information. Simply subscribe to all Perl events worldwide using your
favorite calendar tool. http://www.yapceurope.org/ical/conferences.ics

This calendar is hosted by the YAPC Europe Foundation.

If some data is missing or incomplete, please let me know, preferably
by sending me a patch against the source YAML file (this is the best
way to ensure fast updates). http://www.yapceurope.org/conferences.yml

[Also posted to use.perl.org]

 If you want I can give it a try...

The .ics file is generated using TT and the YAML file hosted by the YAPC
Europe Foundation. My goal is to only ever worry about the YAML file.

If you find more uses to this data, please go ahead!
