Day 3

Frustrated by the absence of a unified calendar for all ERFA, CCCV, and CCC family events? Wondering why such a resource is hard to create and maintain? Event aggregation, particularly when open source and non-profit, could be a key solution, addressing challenges both within and beyond the chaos community. Our approach tries to address three critical needs: the event participants' need to get the information, the event organizers' need to have a single source of truth for their event data (and to have it under their control), and the world's need to have things be more accessible. This talk introduces boudicca.events, an open-source project aimed at reframing event aggregation. Our solution is centered around creating a extendable, open, and easily accessible source for all event-related data, thereby empowering both organizers and participants. I will be highlighting the architecture and decisions behind boudicca.events and the challenges that are still to come. Join us to explore how this project could not only enhance event visibility within the chaos community but also has the potential to impact far beyond.
