Nice little name for PDC Session Browser Milestone 1. Last night at around 1AM I had most of the UI flow, basic search functionality, Attend/Skip sessions and data persistance working. Not yet implemented, for various reasons, is the ability to edit Notes on a per session basis, but that’s number one priority for the release of a first test version (that will happen, Murphy’s permitting, tonight).
Bad news: the performance numbers are embarassing. Saving the XML after adding a note generates an unexplained IOException.
Good news: thanks to Jason, the UI has been refined to a point where it actually “looks” like a nice product. I’m in contact with the right people to have constantly updated sessions data. I’m working already on dramatic performance improvements.
