It is glitchy, but fwiw I've used this in production both for DC14 and for
other conferences.  I think the one problem I ran into with it at DC14 had
to do with overlapping slots on the schedule; these were bugs in the
schedule slots, to be sure, but it probably wasn't obvious to most people
that it would have such an impact on the software.
