Use ExpoCal to Plan at Expo

There is now a scheduling app for the Web 2.0 Expo. It'll help you keep track of which sessions you want to attend, find out which ones are most popular, and who's going to be where. It can be found at

ExpoCal has all of the views and pivots that you want for figuring out what is happening at a conference. It provides views of sessions by day, tag, and speaker. If you create an account you can make your schedule. People can also share their calendars (here's mine for the first couple of days). You can see who else is attending a session and what its tags are. ExpoCal lets you gauge relative attendance size (popularity) with its tag and speaker clouds. It also has a mobile interface that let's you see your schedule and what talks are happening now.  There is rumor of a Twitter interface in the works.

Kellan Elliott-McCrea (an Expo Ignite speaker) updated OSCal for Web 2.0 Expo. He and Evan "Rabble" Henshaw-Plath created the initial app last summer. Thanks!

no Web2Open schedule? no ability to add your own event? pretty structure, but personalizing what a conference organizer thinks isn't that much utility.

ExpoCal is a great tool, but for a more social-network-y type conference calendar for Web 2.0 Expo, Ross, you might be interested in my Conferenceer website.

Conferenceer agreggates the panels and speakers, like ExpoCal, but it also lets you create relationships with other conference-goers and even view blog feeds of everyone in attendace.

I can't make it to San Francisco, but I've had a lot of fun putting together Conferenceer, and I hope you'll check it out :-)

Web2.0 Expo has come and gone, but OSCON and Railsconf are coming up. lets you pick all the sessions you want to attend and to show them off via a url for your blog. Very cool :)
