Updated for 2018!  Cheers and thanks for the raw data access on the grid scheduler that makes re-importing data a breeze!

General Convention Discussion / Re: Missed Connections - 2015
« on: May 27, 2015, 08:53:20 PM »
I wore a top hat and your name is Amy and we danced at the 2013 and 2014 Black and White Balls, I was surprised you remembered my name in 2014, so I made sure to remember yours for this year!  However, I didn't see you at the ball this year, perhaps a missed connection, or perhaps you weren't able to attend this year.  Anyway, be sure to save a couple dances for me if you show up to the Black and White Ball in 2016!

General Convention Discussion / Raw data download on m.fanime.com
« on: May 22, 2015, 03:31:57 PM »
I see someone added a raw data download to m.fanime.com, which I suspect has a general audience of about 5 people, one of which is definitely me, so, thank you!  Would have been great to have gotten that a few days ago, but the site was easy enough to scrape last night which worked out okay ;).  In case it is removed (it is *really* not for a general audience ^_^), the URL is http://m.fanime.com/output.php?type=json or type=xml.

If you plan on doing the same next year (or leaving the endpoint up even if it's not linked to anywhere), it would be great to know a few days before the convention, as I can set up my scheduler app at http://fanime.info to just pull from it once and hour or something and get all of the schedule updates.  But, for now, I've got a convention to enjoy!

Thanks!

General Convention Discussion / Re: Pocket Guide in PDF form?
« on: May 21, 2015, 11:48:08 PM »
It doesn't have exactly the same feature set as Guidebook (specifically mentioned here - no alerts), but I've updated my interactive schedule over at http://fanime.info/ - it does let you quickly highlight the things you're interested in, share your schedule between devices, view and modify your schedule when offline (assuming you loaded the page once while online).  Hope someone else gets some use out of it!

Updated for 2015!

Now includes an additional URL if events have a url from Fanime's mobile scheduler.

General Convention Discussion / Re: 12 Years in 2 Weeks
« on: May 21, 2015, 04:44:24 PM »
I've only read up until 2008, but just wanted to drop a note to say I'm finding these super interesting!  I usually don't read this "long-form" kind of stuff, but either this is extra interesting (a bit of "seeing how the sausages are made" combined with having been to the same 12 years of Fanime and knowing some of the staffers), or I'm just really trying to kill time before I can leave work and start getting ready for Fanime.   And, hey, it's almost 5, I think I'll call it a day...

General Convention Discussion / Game of Thrones Showing
« on: May 21, 2015, 09:31:33 AM »
I'm sure there are lots of Game of Thrones fans attending, and I'm sure some, like me, will be missing their regularly scheduled viewing on Sunday night.  Anyone have HBOGo (or whatever their streaming service is) and want to do an unofficial showing of Gamed of Thrones in a hotel room or something? =)

Scrambling to scrape the live programming schedule from Fanime's site and get it into http://fanime.info, and then going through the schedule and marking all of the things I absolutely had to see (of which I probably actually managed to attend like 25% of those ; ).

Agreed!  The registration lines were amazing!  Though it felt slightly silly walking through a giant yellow maze of tape, I was giggling with joy due to the fact that there was NO LINE, and smiled every time I walked by, looked down, and saw no one waiting to get a badge.  Assuming something like 30k attendees and last year's average of around 3 hours waiting to get a badge, that's OVER 10 MAN-YEARS of convention attendance time saved (or, assuming an average con-goer spends $40 for every 8 hours they're awake at the con, that's just about half a million in revenue for vendors and local businesses)!

General Convention Discussion / Re: Missed Connections 2014???

To all of the gals I danced with at the Black and White ball, thanks for the lovely dances!  I was wearing black and white.  Maybe that's not detailed enough...  I was in a tux, top hat, and bow tie, with black and white pocket square.  A special shout-out to the one gal who remembered my name from last year, always a pleasure to dance with you and I remember you too (though forgot your name, I'm horrible with names).  Hope to dance again!

Found a page to scrape the live programming data from, so that is now in my interactive schedule over at http://fanime.info.  Enjoy!

Video Programming / Re: Interactive Program Schedule

That one is not interactive, or even HTML, sadly.

Sorry if I sounded negative - outside of the context of an interactive program schedule, that one is actually quite useful (and exactly the format I used to print out, and mark up with a highlighter to keep track of what I wanted to see, before the days in which we all have supercomputers in our pockets ; ).

That one is not interactive, or even HTML, sadly.  Last year there was one on apps.fanime.com which was not bad, although entirely under-advertised so almost no one knew it existed ^_^.  However, it does look like http://www.fanime.com/panels/panel-listing now has a lot of the live programming schedule, so I should be able to get that pulled into the interactive schedule tonight, great!

I posted this over in the Video Programming forum, but my web-app scheduler/planner (http://fanime.info/)is available again this year, more info here: http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,19477.0.html.  Unfortunately it doesn't look like apps.fanime.com is exposing the schedule data this year, so I'm unable to automatically import the whole schedule, and have, so far, only manually entered the video programming (as that's what I'm most interested in).  If you'd like to help, there's a link in the above-mentioned forum post to start inputting data right now =) (note: user-made schedule changes don't show up in the general planner until I approve it, but anyone doing editing should see everyone else's changes immediately).

Video Programming / Interactive Program Scheduler
« on: May 21, 2014, 10:39:56 PM »
Interactive Program Scheduler

URL: http://thesilentb.com/fanime/
Status: 2018: All data imported @5/26 6:38AM, daily re-imports each morning

Features:
  • Mark individual events as things you want to see, or maybe want to see with a single click/tap to toggle through grey/yellow/green color coding
  • Don't know what anime this is?  Click the ? icon to Google search the title
  • Filter Schedule by Live/Video/Dance/etc
  • Log in and save your schedule on one device, then view and edit it on another (e.g. your phone at the con)
  • Works even when offline (assuming you loaded the page while you had an internet connection before getting in to the overcrowed airwaves of the con), saves your changes when next online.

So, in some previous years Fanime has had an online program schedule (YAY for the resurrection of the grid schedule this year, and raw data access, thanks!), and I've generally found it really handy to tweak it to a color-coded schedule of what I may want to see that I can pull up on my phone (e.g. http://thesilentb.com/fanime/index.2011.html from 2011).  So, back in 2013 I spent a couple hours and put together one.

Anyway, if you're interested in using this, let me know on the forums here, or get in contact with me, or just start using it =)

Shout out to all the wonderful gals I danced with at the Black and White Ball, especially the short Asian gal who didn't know how to swing at the start of the dance, but was following like a pro by the end =).

I was the dapper gentleman with a top hat, bow tie, and chin-length bangs.  If any of you happen to be in the Bay area, let me know if you want to go dancing again =).

This has now been updated to work better both without an account (plan is just saved locally) and when network connections are poor (loads much faster now).

Heh, I ended up scraping the data myself before seeing your post, but it's now scraped and all imported into the interactive planner!

Ooh, excellent, should be pretty trivial to scrape that data and put into interactive form.  Any reason that schedule is not linked from the Fanime page, or announced anywhere?
