Introducing the Airshipworld Events Calendar

© Airshipworld
It's been awfully quiet here at the Airshipworld Blog and you might have asked yourself if Airshipworld is dead, but rest assured we have just been working on something in our labs for the last couple of weeks. And today I am proud to announce the availability of the Airshipworld Events Calendar. It's a new piece in the big Airshipworld puzzle that we believe will bring great value to the community.
Right now, you can use the Events Calendar to simply find upcoming events in the airship community or you can actively contribute by adding your own events or editing existing events to provide more information. The service is completely free and will remain free forever.
For the near future we plan to provide an API which allows you to extract the calendar data so that you can use it on you website, personal calendar or in your publication.
The goal is to simplify our lives by having a collaborative events database that everyone can use and everyone can contribute to.
In order to make the Events Calendar into a great place to share and find information about events I need your help. Create a user and add your own airship related events. Send me your ideas, thoughts and feedback in an email or post it in the comments for everyone to read. And if you want to, you can also sign up for the Airshipworld bug tracker a place where you can formaly report a bug in the Events Calendar or can make a feature-request.
So have fun checking out the Events Calendar and let me know what you think, and don't be shy adding new events, it's open to everyone.
Oh, I almost forgot. The Events Calendar already uses the new design for Airshipworld, so check it out and let me know what you think, the Blog will change to the new design in a few weeks too.
