  • I then wrote another Perl program to convert those text files into pretty HTML. With CSS! I speak baby CSS, but it's still enough to make me VERY happy. Anyhow, the result was ten or eleven HTML pages, one per track. Each page contains a full grid of the conference, with the sessions in the current track highlighted. It's cool to be able to click from page to page and see sessions light up and fade away.

    With a tiny bit more CSS fu, you could have just marked each talk's table cell with a class="tracknam

      With a tiny bit more CSS fu, you could have just marked each talk's table cell with a class="trackname" and done the buttons up with a tiny bit of javascript to toggle the CSS styles. presto. one page. ;)
      I realized that when I wrote it, but debugging Javascript and CSS is such a nightmare that I figured it was much easier to slap a foreach loop around the code.

      Don't give me shit. I like my hammer :-)
