Bug Description

The UDS Schedule Page could use some improvements.

Firstly the page is too wide and does not make great use of the space, with title and descriptions of sessions in many cases unreadable. Alignment of some content is off as well and the styling for 'meeting pods' does not fit with the Ubuntu theme.

It is also not clear how to access related content (i.e. the etherpad) and using Javascript we could condense all the schedules into one and allow a user to configure how it is displayed.

Hi Andy! Thanks for mock up, can you talk to johnoxton? He's helping us with a redesign of summit and you both working together would be so much win! On another note, I'm hijacking this bug for tracking our upcoming redesign.

What is your thought on the new agenda view:

The agenda view is designed for laptops/desktops/mobile devices. The monitors in the hallways will still display the old schedule.

Cool! One thing I think it could use though is some better alignment above the list, and not have the list of attendees on hover, especially with large numbers of people, it becomes very awkward to use.

A popover that appears on click, when could then be closed would be a lot easier to use, IMHO. Also then you could make it larger, and avoid the problem of it not fitting on one screen.
