The iCal Files – ApacheCon US 2006 Schedule

The speaker notifications have gone out, the schedule is on the website, and registration is open. ApacheCon US 2006 is getting closer, and although I won’t be able to be there (it’s the very first week of college, and I’m hoping to be starting my final year… Aargh!), I’ve once again gone and turned out some iCal files for those of you who will make it (yes, I ought to be packing to move back to Ireland, or writing that darn essay. Mneh, I tell you!).

It’s the same deal as last time, and if you’re bringing an iPod to the conference, I’ve also got instructions for importing the schedules to the iPod, and viewing them thereon.

The whole schedule – warning, this is big, full, and slightly scary looking! There’s an awful lot of stuff going on at the con!

The plenaries schedule includes plenary sessions, lunches, coffee breaks – anything that’s good for everyone, no ‘tracks’.

The tutorials schedule will let you know what’s going on for the first two days, although don’t forget the hackathon, your chance to get some really good work done in real time, with the people you usually have to play cross-timezone email-tag with :)

Like I’ve said before, this is going to be bigger and better than any other con going, so the ‘conference’ days are jam-packed. There’ll be five tracks all week long, and an extra all-Cliff, all-day special on the Friday.

The schedules for these are:

Room 1
Room 2
Room 3
Room 4
Room 5
Room 6

As usual, I’ll try and keep these as up-to-date as possible… If you’re subscribed to the iCal, you’ll get those updates automatically – if you’ve just downloaded it for offline viewing, or your iPod, you may have to resync closer to the con.

Remember to keep an eye on the wiki for things like BoF sessions, and if you’re planning a party, make sure to add it there, so everyone can join in the fun! Enjoy!

    Awesome: I went the geek route and wrote a Java parser to create the session-chair file, which was a key need for us.

    Yes, next time we hope to have ‘official’ iCal files on the website itself. It takes a lot of coordination. Check out the still-alpha ASF RDFCal site that’s now available too:

    (Although admittedly that’s a much larger scope project, not specific session tracks)

  • Thanks so much for doing this! I can’t tell you how crazy it makes me that most conferences don’t provide something as simple as an iCal URL.
