Welcome to EVDB, the Events and Venues Database. I’m Brian Dear, founder and CEO of EVDB, Inc., and on behalf of the whole EVDB team, welcome, and thank you for your interest in our company and our service.

We’re opening the website and this blog early — “early” to us, that is. “Finally” to some, no doubt. :-)

Things to Keep in Mind
The EVDB service is launching in a very early beta stage. Lots of stuff doesn’t work yet. We’ve tried to hide/disable all the inoperable stuff until it works. Performance on some features may be slower than expected. You will find bugs. You will find holes. You will find stuff that’s confusing. You’ll find things that aren’t very well documented. You might not find very many events on the first day (or the second).
A beta test, particularly an early one, is a thrill for some users, and not such a thrill for others. If you enjoy trying out freshly-baked code, and want to help us make this stuff work, reporting bugs, identifying problems or inconsistencies on the site, suggesting ways to make it better, then this beta test is for you. If you are looking for something more complete and polished, I suggest you try back in a month. Or two. Or three . . .

What to Do If You Suspect You’ve Found a Bug
