Every community needs a good calendar

Consumed =>  “Building a WordPress Theme Around the Events Calendar Plugin” by Vladislav Davidzon on Speckyboy Design Magazine.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

Vladislav – Congrats! Your timing is perfect. Thank you. I have a site I need to revisit and a calendar plays a strong role in content requirements.

Two questions:

1) How “friendly” is this plugin coded for responsive layouts? Or what about sharing the same back-end content across two themes – one for full-screen and one for small screen? A traditional grid obviously isn’t going to do well on a small-screen.

2) How well does this plugin make sure of WP transients? From what I understand, one of the problems with calendars are that they are DB intensive (if they support reoccurring events). That said, unless there’s an event added or changed the requests could be “cached” without having to tax the DB again and again and again for the same response. I was wondering if this plugin was smart like that?
