Have you been using COD? We want to find out! As we roll beta in, the maintainers are interested in helping your conference be successful. Fill out this form and let us know what you think. By submitting contact information, someone from the maintainers team will get in touch and see how we can help. It'll also be a way to get announcements when new versions come out.

And if you have questions, you can drop in #drupal-cod on freenode! Look for jyee, dyannenova, japerry, or mrconnerton for help.
Thanks to everyone sprinting this week, we put over 250 combined hours on getting COD into a stable state and released our first beta at Drupalcon Austin!
Major new features from the alphas (Before Jan):
Transitioned from Entity Registration to Ticket module
Having a proper registration system that meets the needs of camps, cons, and non-drupal events has been a source of pain and work-arounds in the 7.x version of COD (and registration in general). The ticket module changes much of this by re-architecting to a data model similar to eventbrite.Read more
I've learned a lot about how COD 7 works in the last couple of weeks, still haven't quite figured out the view cod_session_schedule. (This is for the version cod-7.x-1.0-alpha4+1-dev)
The documentation has not quite kept up with the development of this great application, so the existing videos and docs don't help much. I can create all the components of a schedule -- time slots, rooms, sessions, speakers -- but how to get the preview to appear in cod_session_schedule is still an elusive mystery.Read more
Trying out COD, and I see that it has the ability to create multiple events. Problem is, I want the session manager or attendee managers of one even to not be able to see the attendees/other info of other events. Is there any possible way to do it by just playing around with the configuration?
We had a very productive Distro Summit at SANDcamp this week https://www.sandcamp.org/drupal-distribution-summit There was an excellent dialog on both technical and business topics. There was distro maintainer representation from Acquia, Phase2, LevelTen, Four Kitchens, ChapterThree, ImageX, Lullabot and many others. There were 46 attendees who engaged in a full day discussion on various topics. We will be holding another Distro Summit later this year. I am writing a summary and resource document for distro maintainers and the community. It should be available within two weeks.Read more
Tengo en puertas un proyecto con Drupal, bastante extenso, para trabajarlo desde 0, para un cliente que tengo en el exterior del país.
En síntesis: Se trata de desarrollar un portal para administrar la organización de eventos y conferencias. Sin embargo los estándares de calidad exigidos por el cliente son bastante altos, en tema de diseño, seguridad, garantía 100% online, etc.
Voy a pasar las especificaciones completas a los interesados que se contacten conmigo directamente.Read more
My original post in the COD group: http://groups.drupal.org/node/178594
Essentially, I would like to test COD using Quickstart as my local dev environment. I have Quickstart installed successfully, and now, I'm trying to figure out how to use COD instead of the vanilla Drupal core to create a new site in Websites. I've read "drush help qc" for hints and searched drupal.org but haven't found anyone who has specifically used these two together.Read more
I am attempting to install COD in a Quickstart environment but am a little lost as to how to get that done. I have successfully gotten the Quickstart environment setup in VirtualBox, and I understand how to create a vanilla Drupal 6 or 7 install. I've also downloaded the latest version of COD from the usecod.com site.Read more
We're exploring using COD for conferences we're running, such as http://www.percona.com/live/london-2011/
I'm looking for contractor to help us to customize COD for our needs and potentially developed any features we're missing for us.
Any changes which will be of public interest should be open source, hence we would be happy to sponsor developing
features as part of COD which we need.

Now I'm looking at the documentation where it says "Create an event for people to attend." The tool tip for "Sessions" says a session happens during an event. So I assume the "event" is the conference. Could it also be a subset of the conference, like "Friday Afternoon Workshops?" When creating a session I do not see a slot for specifying which event the session is associated with. Is it that a session is configured for a certain time slot and if it falls within the duration of an event it automatically is associated with that event?Read more
