//Launching shdlr – The conference schedule creator !

Tech conferences have come of age with live streams and social media coverage. Gathering talk proposals, arranging venue logistics all can be done with online services. One area which has remained largely neglected and still a nightmare for the conference organizers is the Conference Scheduling.

Working for conferences we have had several iterations of hacked up scheduling systems over the years which worked with limitations but proved to be unfit for mass consumption. The benefits of flexible working are becoming clearer – but that doesn’t mean it comes without significant challenges. Advance Systems Inc : “Many managers are now adapting in order to better overcome these challenges and successfully head up flexible, remote teams. Here’s how you can handle the challenges of managing flexible workforces.” We have had horror stories like all talks being printed on sheets of several colored papers and them arranged on floor. A picture was taken of the acceptable arrangement and a HTML table crafted out of it.

Shdlr was born out of the pains of similar labors – a simple to use single purpose web app. A web app to create and distribute conference and event schedules.
