The RailsConf 2007 website recently posted the schedule for sessions (My session is at 4:25pm on Saturday). As the RailsConf-bound people at Vonage started talking about what they wanted to see, I thought it would be nice if they had a scheduler application so that you could make your selections. Even more, it would be nice if you had a way to compare those schedules once they are created. Well, why would I wait for them to do it when I can do it myself? Without further ado, I present to you:

RailsConf 2007 Scheduling Application

It was a bit of work getting it going, mostly because I had trouble getting a Rails application running on Dreamhost, and configuring ActionMailer. It seems to be working pretty well now. One thing to note is that I got the data for sessions by scraping the RailsConf scheduling page (liked above). If that page changes, then my application will be out of date. Please contact me if you notice that particular event occurring. Once you create a schedule you will get a key, and then you can compare schedules by entering someone else’s key. It is pretty self explanatory. Take a look and let me know what you think!
