Adding a new Event
To add an event, create a PR or open an issue which has a JSON object containing:
|title||The name of the conference or event.|
|location||The city and country, or
|date||When the conference occurs. Read more below.|
|url||The URL for the conference / registration.|
|banner_url||An image which can be used in the top featured section.|
|tags||An array of strings. Max of 4, so choose wisely.|
|coc_url||The URL for the event's Code of Conduct.|
|diversity_url||The URL for the event's Diversity statement|
In general, a date of the form
0000-MM-DD is prefered. In other words, the
0000. The date portion can be the last known date, or the next date,
or a generalised date.
In the UI, a day of
0-9 is shown as "Early",
10-19 is shown as "Mid",
20+ is shown as "Late". E.g.
0000-01-01 is "Early Jan",
0000-01-22 is "Late Jan".
Using the date of the next event is also acceptable, including the year. E.g.
You'll need to open a PR which includes an appropriately named image (lowercase,
alphanumeric, dashes instead of spaces). Keep it max 1MB. Store it in
Acceptance of an event to ConfCal is at the sole discretion of the maintainers. To keep quality high, this may also involve us looking at the following:
- a good history of the event
- active social media presence / interaction
- presence of a code of conduct
