We’re going to Austin again in March, for SXSW. It’s beyond great when it comes to live music. And tacos. But their official schedule is impossible to use due to the shear amount of gigs.
Two years ago we created a little tool for ourselves and our friends called LASTSX.WS which mashed the lineup with their last.fm account. This got shut down by the SXSW lawyers due to brand infringement in the URL. So when setting it up this year we removed any references to SXSW in the URL.
The end product is far from perfect, but it was a quick hack and it works on our machines™. Enjoy!
(Ok this is a tech blog so here’s what we used: PHP5.5, Nginx, Memcached, Curl.)
