Is there anyway to automatically have my Meetup event calendar sync up with Google Calendar, or even Outlook?

Update

I want to do this for all of my groups at once (not each individual group)

If you look at the bottom of the calendar page for whatever Meetup group you are looking for you'll see an iCal link to subscribe to.

Copy this link and within Google Calendar you can add a new calendar by URL.

Paste the link and click Add Calendar and you should be good to go.

edit: This no longer seems to be possible on Meetup.com

"edit: This no longer seems to be possible on Meetup.com" It is at the bottom of your meetup's calendar area, right-click and copy the link on the text "ical". Thanks for the good answer "quickcel", but it won't let me comment on your answer. –  user48729 Oct 2 '13 at 20:42

On your meetup home page, click the 'Add to' link above Your meetup calendar. Then choose All my Meetups or My Yes RSVPs. Then click the Google Calendar icon.

This will bring up your Google Calendar with a prompt asking: Do you want to add this calendar? Click Yes and all your meetups should now be added to your calendar now and going forward.

I think the Asker would like to be able to have the events automagically appear without such intervention. –  Al E. Sep 14 '12 at 18:48

You can add Your meetup calendar to Google Calendar accessable over your personal home page.

It seems this hasn't worked for some time now. Even though my personal calendar (with suggestions turned off) shows items, the calendar URL shows no entries. To emphasize, it did work some time ago. Ditto for the "RSVP'd Yes" calendar. –  l0b0 Sep 3 '13 at 22:00

The basic idea still works (2014). The calendar is on the front page of meetup when you're logged in. It has an "export to" link that does the job. –  rfay Mar 14 at 13:22

I used the link on my meetup home page and it worked just fine. I used the option to only sync the RSVPs. Once you go to your Google calendar you can use the drop down next to My Calendar and choose settings. Then you can go in and set how your notifications and reminders are delivered.

Now you have to go to the calendar page and choose the iCal in the bottom (then either you open it or copy/paste it to Google Calendar for instance).

It's quite annoying to do that for all meetups...

Good news!

You can do this for all groups fortunately.

Instructions

First you need Firefox with Firebug extension installed.

Then you need to open Firebug (default by F12), open Editor tab and paste that code:

$(".card-photo").each(function(i,v){

var x = $(v).attr('href')
x = x.split("/")
var xpre = "http://api.meetup.com/"
var xaft = "/upcoming.ical?key="
var key = "YOUR_API_KEY_HERE"
var what = x[3]

var link = xpre + what + xaft + key

console.log(link)

})

Where your API key can be found here:

https://secure.meetup.com/meetup_api/key/

Then run this script, and on output tab you'll have list of iCalendar links to subscribe.
