Opening up Public User Profiles

Since day one users could indicate being interested in an event (follow) or mark an event as attending. We have a lot more features planned around this functionality, and today we’re releasing a new feature to move another step into this direction.

Last week we received some feedback from one of our users that it would be great if we can provide a machine readable format for these followed and attended events.

We are always happy to hear from our users requests even though some features are easier to implement than others. While we have a full API planned for the future, we strive to find ways to help users in the meantime.

Luckily, exporting the events that someone is following is quite simple to implement. Starting today, we provide all events you follow, attend, speak at or organize as standardized Atom feeds. This means you can either subscribe to other users with a feed reader of your choice or you can use these feeds to integrate a list of all your upcoming events on your own website—if programming is your thing.

If you want even more information about the events, you can look forward to a bright future as we want to make the public information on Colloq available to everyone. If you have ideas on which data you would like to use, get in touch with us. We’d love to see you get the most out of Colloq.
