From Post-Its on a wall to fancy database-driven scheduling systems, there are many tools and procedures that are useful to the programming wrangler. Don't hesitate to ask others what processes work best for them.


Software Tools

  • Zambia: A MySQL/PHP based scheduling tool sponsored and used by Arisia and other conventions.
  • Pentabarf: A Ruby and PL/pgSQL based scheduling tool developed for non sf conferences featuring authors of papers giving presentations. Nevertheless, it is used by Balticon.
  • [Conference Planner], developed for Renovation, is available, but currently needs some technical expertise for initial installation and configuration. It is being actively developed towards off-the-shelf usability.
