Automate process of publishing CiviCRM Partner training / event schedules using a feed or similar method
Automate the process of publishing CiviCRM Partner training / event schedules and remove the requirement to manually create individual Events in CiviCRM.
Background From #159 (comment 26532)
For 2020, Agileware will be posting a 12-month training schedule and also promoting this on civicrm.org. I would much prefer having an easy method of advertising these events in the events listing on civicrm.org - ideally something automated like pull in an iCal feed. It's time-consuming and tedious, to have to manually create a CiviCRM Event... If we run 72 training sessions in the year, that's 72 CiviCRM Events ... we have to create.
This could be simply a matter of having a feature on the website or CiviCRM which allows an iCal feed of Events to be consumed and published. RSS or another format could also be used - perhaps even a custom XML feed. Open to ideas.
Not having good timezone support in CiviCRM would likely be an issue since training dates are advertised in differing timezones (see dev/core#441) so that needs to be considered when doing this.
