This repository contains the data files for the ConfWatch project, it is from the community for the community ❤️


You can contribute by forking this repository and adding / fixing attributes, categories, events or editions.


The attributes folder contains JSON files representing boolean attributes of conferences editions, such attributes should be kept as simple answers to questions like:

Does this conference edition has kids friendly facilities?

Which is represented as the kids-friendly.json file:

	"title": "Kids Friendly",
	"description": "The event has kids friendly facilities."


Similarly to the attributes, the categories contains json files of the events categories, such as infosec.json:

	"title": "InfoSec",
	"description": "Information security."


Events are represented as sub folders of the root events folder, each one having a main event.json file describing the main information of a conference:

	"title": "defcon",
	"description": "originally started in 1993, it was a meant to be a party for member of \"platinum net\", a fido protocol based hacking network out of canada. as the main u.s. hub i was helping the platinum net organizer (i forget his name) plan a closing party for all the member bbs systems and their users. he was going to shut down the network when his dad took a new job and had to move away.",
	"website": "",
	"categories": ["infosec"]


Each event has an editions subfolder containing json files for each of the past, current and ideally future editions of the given conference, for instance, here's the file events/defcon/editions/defcon-25.json:

	"title": "DEFCON 25",
	"type": 0,
