Aimed at Site builders and developers alike. It requires no specific coding knowledge but will be ideal for anyone who has an interest in Events based Drupal applications and is interested in new approaches.
Perhaps for the whole history of Drupal, Drupal sites and applications have had ways of showing events, whether that be Conferences, Classes, Shows or whatever.
However when you want to create a series of events that may be regular and mostly the same, but likely will vary from event to event, there has not been a simple and effective way of doing this.
This is where Recurring Events module comes in. A Plug and Play system for creating a series of events that recur in a variety of ways or not at all, yet is flexible enough that each event can then be changed and adjusted as required.
The system allows every event to be an entity in it's own right, so it can be edited and amended, yet still related to the other events that were created when it was.
This session will discuss why this new approach is necessary, how to use it, examples of applications, how to contribute to the module and a discussion that may raise more related ideas.
