[openFATE 312584] Connect calendar on news.o.o to connect upcoming events
Feature changed by: Jos Poortvliet (jospoortvliet)
Feature #312584, revision 3
Title: Connect calendar on news.o.o to connect upcoming events

openSUSE Infrastructure: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jos Poortvliet (jospoortvliet)
Partner organization:

Currently the news team manages upcoming events. Not everyone sends in
new events - team meetings are usually there but openSUSE @ a
conference almost never makes it. Connect however has a nice, easy to
use 'event' system which IS used by the ambassadors already. Having
these show up in the calendar on news.o.o would be awesome!
It would also be useful for team meetings, of course, as well as all
other openSUSE related events.

- Integrate some social features in connect for promo of events
(feature/id: 312184)
+ - Enhance events page in connect to be used for planning
+ (feature/duplicate: 312178)

Use Case:
On Augst 6-12 in Berlin the Desktop Summit takes place and a lot of
openSUSE people will be there. Create a event on connect and let
everyone click "I will attend". Now on news.o.o this event shows up in
the calendar and anyone can see who will be there from the openSUSE

Business case (Partner benefit): It lowers the efforts required to manage events by the
news team. It also lowers the barrier for people to add events and
makes sure more events show up.
The calendar could also have a nice(r) view somewhere and attendance
can show up on attendees' webpages.
