  • 4. That made me and my girlfriend sad... :( CC Photo by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rivalius13/ Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 5. I noticed that when a TV show is starting, I wouldn't get a piece of paper nor open a txt to write it down Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 6. but the damn phone is always nearby! Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 7. What if I had a list of the episodes of each show I follow, and their synopsis, etc. and could check them on my beloved N900!? Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 8. How could this be done? 2 options: #1 screen scraping #2 a nice API Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 9. I searched for the nice API Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 10. Found TheTVDB.com : GPL project where everybody can contribute with info and art about their favorite shows Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 11. And there was even a Python module to try the API right away Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 12. So I did a fast check, the API worked; TheTVDB seemed well updated; and I started SeriesFinale using Igalia's hackfest time Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
  • 13. The architecture is not dependent on TheTVDB (another provider backend can be written) Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
