LS2010 Sessions db (Version 0.1 - rough) ready

Tenth Annual Lotusphere Sessions Planning DB

For those who can't do anything but dream of Orlando in January...

A few people have deduced the super secret URL.  Unlike last year, where the URL was LS2009_SessionsDB or the year before when it was LS2008_SessionsDB (and so forth back nine years), this year the super secret URL is... wait for it...


Anyway, Version 0.1 (meaning a lot of sessions have times and rooms, but some don't, and lots of other stuff is only partly there) is ready for you to download.  I'd strongly encourage you to replicate with Tranquility (using the handy view action if you like) frequently over the next few weeks.  I should point out that frequently does not mean every fifteen minutes.  It means once a day or so.  In mid January, you can move to every fifteen minutes if you have ADD, ADHD or ADOS (attention deficit ohh shiny).

I (cleverly) tried to use that link last week and it failed, and it's still failing for me with this error:

HTTP Web Server: Couldn't find design note - LS2010_SessionsDB

Try again. It just worked for me.

Ben - the add to my calendar button is not working

@John and others - If you replicate from Tranquility, the Add to my Calendar button will now work. You may want to go delete the calendar entries you just added to last year's Lotusphere, since the dates were still based on that.

Hi Ben

The view Day/Time is not sorting the times properly. For example, Day 1 sunday, 1:30PM is showing first when 8am should be

Replicate from Tranquility, as that problem was resolved fairly early on.
