Built from scratch, the new UM Events site offers many new features and enhancements aimed at providing a better user experience. In addition to new browsing and searching tools, users can tailor their lists with event favorites and exclusions that are remembered between logins. Integrating into other calendars and web sites with our new RSS and JSON feeds is easy and robust – customize any list of events using the new browsing tools, then get the feed version in one more step. To achieve all of this, we've redeveloped the entire system using the YII Framework, creating a more modular, scalable and accessible system to facilitate both current and future needs.
