Hey there, multi-talented Niners of eclectic and extensive experience:
I'm looking for good software, preferably open-source for running a convention: event tracking, ticketing, hopefully exposing the data as a live web page as well, for the people attending and buying tickets.
This is for a science fiction con, with the standard run of panels, lectures and presentations, over a couple of days. I'm sure that there are dozens of projects for that out there, and I would really prefer to NOT reinvent the wheel here.
Have any of you used something like this before, and can recommend it? I'm scouting around on SourceForge and so forth, and found a few possibilities, but a personal recommendation would help greatly.
