Just another FCI-H weblog

Community Calender

FCIH bloggers started a public calendar under the name: Community Events Calendar. It will be focused mainly on the Egyptian IT Community. A glimpse of the calendar is here below:
Also you can subscribe to calendar in many other ways, for eg the HTML version here:

Or in iCal format that can be feed to Outlook or Apple iCal, etc :
http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/a4lgh95ric33n590179795q0k4%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics
Also, as XML feed:
http://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/a4lgh95ric33n590179795q0k4%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic
The calendar will include offline IT community Events held around Egypt. Also, online events both from Egypt (hopefully there will be, someday :)) & around the world.

Please, feel free to contact us (FCIH bloggers) or comment on this post, below, notifying us of events that need to be added to the calendar. Also, any ideas to improve it are much appreciated 🙂
