ABE (Amorphous Blob of Events) is Olin's student-built store of information about Olin events. It enables the creation of digital experiences that share information about past, present, and upcoming events.
As a Calendar User
You want ABE's web calendar front end, abe-web.
As a Developer
The ABE API lets an application read and modify events, labels, and calendar subscriptions. Read about ABE's API documentation here.
ABE can also be used to verify that a user is inside the Olin intranet, and/or
is a member of the Olin community (as demonstrated by possession of an
olin.edu email address). See the documentation on Sign in with
Built With ABE
ABE is a platform. Some online experiences that use the data in ABE include:
- Olin Events is a web view of the Olin calendar. It can also be used to subscribe other calendar programs, such as Google Calendar and desktop and mobile calendar clients, to ABE; and to connect ABE to other calendars.
- FUTUREboard is a digital signage platform for sharing of media, supplemented by information about events happening on campus.
- ABE Event Schedule is an experiment in deriving a conference-track-style schedule from ABE events.
