Subject AW: Any interest in an offline-capable Conference App?
Date Thu, 09 Jul 2015 20:35:21 GMT
Ok ... so I had a look at the Sched API and indeed I think it should have all we need.

But even it it were possible to directly access the API from the mobile application, I think
it would be better to cache the data in a server application as the API has the limitation
of 30 requests per minute if this is exceeded the API is (temporarily) suspended. I could
immagine that there would be more than 30 requests per minute, but these could be easily cached.

In any way, for this we would need an API key ... as soon as a conference is created the creator
can access this key from the settings page.

So I would volunteer to take care of building such a system, if you think it's something usefull.

Chris

Looks like Shed has a pretty good set of APIs to access data:

Thanks,
