The above example runs a scheduler with the dates provided, and when the time or reminder time matches the current time then an event message is published to the SimplePubSub broker. If the time was now 7:36pm on the 25th Nov the topic 'event' with the message 'Meeting with Julie (not real name) at Cafe X' would be published.

Note: It is expected the reminder should be set as a duration countdown rather than a date (e.g. 1 hour before).
