UPDATE: This calendar has now been deleted and the main calendar of all tech events in Aus is now the AuTechHeads calendar – see it here http://www.autechheads.com/events. The calendar has an ical feed that you can bring into your Google Calendar or Microsoft Calendar. Get the ical feed here.
I am a regular attendee at a number of Microsoft User groups and it is very hard to keep track of them, so I wanted to add them all to my calendar (google calendar). So I decided to create a Shared Calendar with all the user groups in there that anyone can update and maintain.
To keep with the Microsoft theme, I created the calendar in Microsoft Live Calendar (it works quite good now, almost as good as Google Calendar), and then opened the calendar as a .ics calendar within my Google Calendar.
So here is the link to the Shared Calendar [Deleted]
I’ve created it so any user group in Aus can add to it, but I’ve only added the Sydney ones for now.
Each calendar item is recurring monthly event and has the URL to the user group and the twitter name of the user group in the description, and the name of the organiser. Some meetings are not recurring exactly on the month, but you can check the URL for specific details of specific meetings. I don’t mind if other non MS user groups want to add stuff to this calendar either.
This calendar is meant to be quite a static calendar for the recurring events – basically just a quick overview of what’s on which night, with a link to the specific website for that user group.
For other general tech events there is the Australian Tech Events calendar here http://www.startup-australia.org/events. If you are organising a specific Tech event, the details should be on this Tech Events calendar. Or preferably the AuTechHeads Calendar.
If you want to be added as a contributor / editor to this calendar please just contact me and I will add you to the calendar.
