Title: FanimeCon Schedule Data
Post by: sysadmin on May 20, 2011, 11:04:08 PM
Hi all,

This is for programmers.

Are you a fancy application developer for either the iPhone or Android or something else?

FanimeCon will be releasing its schedule data in XML form, suitable for parsing in your favorite convention application.
If you're interested in getting access to this, please email me at sysadmin@fanime.com with the subject line I would like XML data, please

This data will be available when the official FanimeCon schedule goes to print.

Please note that Fanime will have its official Web schedule, official Print schedule, and official mobile site.
All other convention applications are considered "unofficial".
(Sorry, we ran out of time to create our own apps this season)

We will also maintain an XML feed of at-con schedule changes, available in happy RSS form.


Anyway, for quick coders, have at it.   Maybe create a thread for your own unofficial convention schedule applications.

Best,
sysadmin

It would be interesting if for Fanime 2012 there was an official fanime 'app' lol

We do live in Silicon Valley :P    but yeah, don't expect one, just a cool idea

This is actually on the list of "stuff we really want to do" and has been on the list since 2010. ;) The problem is more that we don't have anyone on staff that (currently) has time to actually make, test, deploy it.

I just downloaded it, and it's pretty nifty. I'll be interested in testing out the alarm feature.

I have to thank OscarC again. He saved my Fanime with the app. I was pretty terrible at keeping the times for things right, but the alarm feature worked perfectly to let me know I had to be somewhere in ten minutes. Without a printed schedule, it was pretty much all we had to go by.

The only thing I'd have liked to see added was maybe another section for the list and times of the gatherings.
