Lanyrd feeds: never miss out on a conference

We created Lanyrd to scratch our own itch: we were fed up of missing out on great conferences because we didn't hear about them in time. Today we're launching a new feature that makes it even easier to stay in the loop.

If you use feed reader software (we're big fans of Google Reader) you can now subscribe to feeds of newly added conferences on a specific topic, conferences in your area or even a combination of the two.

Our topic, place and topic-in-a-place pages all have accompanying Atom feeds, linked from the sidebar. Some examples:

This also reinforces a key tip for promoting your conference on Lanyrd: don't forget to add topics! Gain maximum exposure for your event by picking relevant topics that people will already be following.

And if you're interested in speaking at conferences don't forget our call for speaker feeds, available for every topic. Here's our feed for PHP conference CFPs: http://lanyrd.com/topics/php/calls/feed/

And finally, if you use iCal, Outlook or Google Calendar you should take a look at our iCal calendar support.

Would love to see this extended to allow history of topics as well (not just upcoming).

Actually, another great addition would be Atom for the people/user/sessions/ page :)

David: we'll be adding more feeds in the future, so that kind of thing is definitely on the cards.

And another greater addition would be to make these feeds PubSubHubbub :) This way my app won't have to poll them all the time!

Suggestion: I'm geographically flexible so it would be really useful to have aggregate locations like this: http://lanyrd.com/topics/startup... or even better: http://lanyrd.com/topics/startup...
