BCON: Download the Schedule to your Calendar with this Script


If you're attending the Blender Conference this week, then this little tweak by aidinabedi may come in handy - it'll sync your selected sessions to your calendar so you can receive timely notifications.

Hey! Are you also coming to the Blender Conference 2023 but frustrated (like me) that you can’t sync or download the schedule? [edit Bart: you can actually sign in to the BCON site and the schedule will sync to your other devices too]

A friend and I got fed up, so we hacked together a little script that adds a download button to the conference schedule page. The button will save your currently filtered schedule into a calendar file (.ics). This file can then be imported into any calendar app (such as Google, Outlook, Apple, etc).

After spending a few days developing this script, we figured we might as well share it. It’s designed to run inside well-known browser extensions like Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey. To use it just follow these super-simple instructions.
