The “Soirées estivales” (2010) as icalendar

The programmes for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 are also available.

Here they are:

Soirées estivales 2010 [ics]

The “Conseil Général” (regional government) of the Alpes-Maritimes sponsors a large number of cultural events. In the summer, they are collectively promoted under the name “Soirées estivales.”

Unfortunately, the programme is only available in HTML. It is not so easy to look at multiple Web pages (there is a lot more to do in the region!). All events in a single calendar is much easier. So, like last year, I wrote a little program to convert the HTML pages to icalendar (“.ics”). Now you can load the full programme into your calendar program.

There is less information in the calendar this year than last year (no real duration, no telephone number, no event category), but it was easier to convert the HTML to icalendar. It would of course have been easier (indeed, unnecessary) with hcalendar mark-up…

The current calendar was generated on July 31s.

I hope the Conseil Général doesn't mind. The Web pages didn't say that adaptation was allowed. Last year, I asked them, but didn't hear back.
