@aviaryan I have a question about the timezone. There was a fix on the event app by @alexagr that resulted in times showing up with the grand opening of fossasia at 5.30AM http://fossasia.github.io/open-event-webapp/rooms.html
@aviaryan We talked about timezones before. In the sample I see a time of "start_time": "2016-03-18T01:30:00", "end_time": "2016-03-18T02:00:00",
How does this work?
Is it documented somewhere?

@mariobehling as has been discussed here ( fossasia/open-event-orga-server#2234 ) , time fields have the timezones of the place where event is being held.
start_time = 2016-03-18T01:30:00 means the session starts at 1:30am in Singapore

@aviaryan thanks for the info. I am not sure, where this time comes from, cause in the original schedule the time is 9.30AM - http://2016.fossasia.org/schedule/
it looks like the times of the schedule in the sample are all different

@aviaryan I am assuming they were saved as UTC maybe
