If you want to publish calendar events to an elmcity hub, the administrator of the hub will ask you to produce a calendar feed and report its URL. Most calendar applications can produce feeds. This page focuses on two free web-based applications that make the process very simple: Google Calendar and Hotmail Calendar.
Q: Which one should I use?
A: Either will work fine. If you already have a Google account, it would make sense to use Google Calendar. Likewise if you already have a Hotmail account, you might want to use Hotmail Calendar. If you don't have either kind of account, sign up for one or the other.
Q: These feeds will enable my calendar to syndicate to other sites, right?
Q: But don't I mainly want to display my calendar on my own site?
A: Of course! Both Google Calendar and Hotmail Calendar provide widgets that you can embed in pages on your own site. That's a common and thus well-documented scenario. These instructions focus, instead, on a scenario that isn't (yet) common: using those same calendars to feed your data to other sites.
Q: How do I publish a calendar feed using Google Calendar?
A: Starting from Google Calendar's home page, follow these steps:
From the upper right corner of the Google Calendar screen, click Settings and then Calendar Settings. Watch!
