Use Google Calendar to plan your IDUG conference schedule

I am an enthusiastic fan of Google's new calendar application, and decided to use it to manage my schedule for the upcoming IDUG conference in Tampa. I entered the 130 sessions for DB2 into a few Google calendars and am sharing them so others can benefit from my caffeine-induced typing session.

If you are a Google Calendar user, or you use some other iCal-compliant program, you can import each of these public calendars into your personal calendar and choose which sessions you want to attend. The nice part is that you'll be able to add other private events into your calendar, like those sales-y parties that database tool vendors throw in their booze-soaked hotel suites. Google Calendar will allow you to manage all that in one place. Isn't that neat?

Each track can be imported as a separate calendar, and I also made calendars for the LUW and Cross-Platform groupings as well. Sorry Informix people, I would have put your sessions in too, but my hands were still sore from the first batch.

The typical caveats apply. These sessions could change at any time, despite my waiting until the last minute to enter them. If anyone from SmithBucklin or IDUG wishes to take control of these calendars, I'll happily give them up to the appropriate person.
