Greetings fellow members, Guests of Honor, Special Guests, concom & staff, and the public at large. The How to Train Your ConFusion Programming Team are proud to present to you, your 2020 How to Train Your ConFusion Schedule.
Your 2020 Online Schedule is dynamic. You can Toggle on/off All Tracks, You can Toggle On/Off Individual Tracks. You can Toggle Days, or even Toggle Detail View. It’s been built so that we may update things and it appears live for you. So be sure to bookmark it, or simply click “The Schedule” in the navigation menu to be taken directly to it.
We’re still adding final touches to the schedule. They will appear shortly. If you are a panelist, you will be receiving an email very shortly with your finalized personal schedule that you can share with the public. Keep an eye out for that email. Be sure to wait for this finalized email, and do not publish your tenative schedule you received. Things have changed since then!
As your Chair, I can not impress upon you the countless hours and work that Annalee Flower Horne, John Winkelman, and E.D.E. Bell have given to create our beautifully displayed schedule. I am so incredibly proud of them, and for them. Thank you, Annalee, John and E.D.E.
If you’d like to join them next spring as they work to implement even more features, you’d be very welcomed!
Alien Planit, our scheduling app, is an open-source project started by Annalee Flower Horne on our programming team, built in Django and distributed under the MIT license. This is our third year using it for ConFusion, and with the help of front-end engineer John Winkelman and feature planning from E.D.E Bell, the application has seen massive improvements this year that have enabled us to get the schedule completed earlier. The Alien Planit team plans to continue iterating on the app to further improve the experience for panelists, planners, and the ConFusion community.
This project can always use more contributors! The Alien Planit team is especially interested in getting help from additional python/django developers and UX and visual designers. If you’re interested in contributing, please check out Alien Planit on github.
And now, We present to you the 2020 How to Train Your ConFusion Programming Schedule:
