Ignite 2015 in Chicago! Keeping track of sessions in Google calendar

I’m lucky and honored to be volunteering this year with the Hand On Labs team here at Ignite 2015 in Chicago. Hope to blog about the amazing lab environment in a future post.

I’m catching as many sessions as I can, and wanted to import my Ignite schedule into Google calendar on my phone. The kind folks at Ignite provided a help document for exporting the My Ignite schedule into various calendars, but the steps for Google Calendar were not clear to me, so perhaps this will help someone else attending Ignite this year.

1.Log into your My Ignite site. Click on My Schedule.

2.Right-Click the Export Calendar link, and copy the URL.
