Me again. Me and my ‘line dance family’ just got home from Eurodance in Southport, England. This event was set up at a hotel for 4 days with 3 different dance floors, 35 choreographers and about 400 dancers. This means we had three DJs updating the feeds and one view to show all three floors’ next three dances and next upcoming event. One of the event directors put an iPad powered 42″ TV in the reception (which everyone had to pass) and that was a brilliant move. Strongly recommended!
Due to the large demand during this event, I was a bit scared the server would have a hard time coping with the requests. And yes, there was some minor issues with the updating of the feeds, but this was 100% due to problems with the local WiFi. The server never even flinched. Not a single drop-out. Not a single page miss. As I think I wrote earlier, the DJ Feed was officially released during that event. And. it. worked. perfectly! I am so happy!
Will try to get hold of some pictures from the event to show y’all!
I am currently translating the DJ Feed to different languages. Could you possibly help me with yours (or any other language you know)?
All I need is your common expression for:
Event (Summary/General event info i.e. what the event is called)
Playlist (or dance list? What du you call it?)
Event information (Times, workshops.. Like ‘schedule’)
Follow this in your mobile
Feed (as in ‘news feed’)
Not shown to users
Remember: Use the words that feel common to you. In Sweden, we never refer to the Playlist as Playlist. Therefore, the translation in Swedish would be “danslista” (Dance list).
Have a look at these pages to see what it looks like:
Demo feed | Admin page
Please just drop me an e-mail with your translation. My address is found here.
So far we’ve got:
Norwegian (Thank, Hanne!)
Danish (Thanks Johnny!)
German (Thanks Anne-Berit!)
Estonian (Thanks Merju!)
French (Thanks, Jean-Pierre!)
Finnish needs to be checked. Can someone with FI settings please surf to the demo feed and have a look?
Super thanks in advance!
Finally had the time to make a web site for the DJ Feed! 🙂
The feed itself has now been seen on by hundreds of dancers on two different continents. So far I haven’t heard anything but positive words and that’s the reason I felt the DJ Feed now deserves a proper web site. 😉
I hope there will be more people finding out about the feed shortly, since it will be officially released during Eurodance in Southport, England in the beginning if June 2014. Looking forward to hearing what input they might have!
