Discussion on: Planning Tech Events with Religious and Cultural Calendar Sensitivity

I'm so here for this!

I've lost count of how many great conferences I've had to self-select out of because they overlap with a Saturday (Shabbat) or a Jewish holiday.

I understand scheduling can be tricky and I generally don't expect the world to revolve around my needs, but if I hear of a conference or event that went out of its way to accommodate a calendar conflict that automatically let's me know that's a conference yet values inclusivity.

If any conference organizers ever want someone to look over a schedule for conflicts with the Jewish calendar I'll be very happy to help!
