DVCon Schedule for Outlook!

Just a reminder for those of you with busy schedules - DVCon starts next Tuesday, February 19 and runs through Thursday, February 21.  My first task when getting ready for a conference is to plan out which sessions I'd like to visit and when I'll have time for meetings.  Unfortunately, conference organizers usually make it exceedingly difficult to do so since the schedules are published in a format that requires a serious amount of cut and paste to add to your personal calendar.  I spent some time this morning and added the entire conference schedule to Google Calendar.  I've added a link to the calendar on my DVCon 2008 Info page.  Check it out and let me know if you have any questions or know of anything I should add!  You should be able to do the following with the info on that page:

  • Subscribe to the calendar via Google Calendar
  • View/print the calendar in a variety of formats
  • Subscribe to the iCal version via Outlook 2007, iPhone, or other iCal enabled calendar applications.

If time permits, my evil side project is to massage the data into a convenient eBook format so I can read it on my Kindle (easier to read than on my candy bar smartphone).  Is there anyone else that would be interested in having access to the schedule in that format?  If not, I may just save that effort for a future conference.
