Android, iPhone and maemo developers wanted

We a currently coding a schedule-application for the Android platform. This application will have the following features: (all off-line)

  • list the lectures, ltalks and stands
  • show the details/abstract of a lecture
  • select favorites so you can find your selection back easily
  • search for lectures based on strings in the title/abstract
  • find the right room easily using a map (todo)
  • alert you when your favorite lectures start (todo)
  • update the list of lectures trough the web (todo)
  • data-input is currently JSON based (still working on converting XML to JSON using XSLT)

The code is based on the googleio2009 application. If you're an Android developer and want to help please contact Christophe. In the spirit of this conference there is probably no need to say it's opensource code.

iPhone, maemo and other developers can also contact Christophe if they'd like to write an (opensource) application for their device. He will assist you where necessary and give you an XML or a JSON database of the lectures.
