Calconnect – October 2008

leave a comment »

It was Calconnect time again, and this October we met at the Yahoo facilities in Sunnyvale CA.  Wow, what a great complex.  Lot’s of purple in evidence.  They have several campuses and all of them look like cool places to work.

Testing at the interop went very well.  There were 8 CALDAV servers, 4 CALDAV clients and 2 iCalendar vendors testing.  What was signicant is all servers were able to do testing with all clients.  That means things are working.  This is a milestone, IMHO. 

At the roundtable itself there were preview demonstrations which were even more exciting.   The previews demonstrated live interoperability in the areas of CalDAV Scheduling, iSchedule Server-Server scheduling, and Free/Busy URL.   These were not fake demos of what “could” be done – they were live demos of working code.  Neat stuff.

The next event will be testing mobile devices and calendaring.  In addition it will be our first event held in Europe.  Kerio Technologies is hosting us in Pilzen, in the Czech Republic.  We will then head to London to do a “Meet Calconnect” event so that European organizations can come and check out the organization.   Calconnect.org has more details.

That’s it for today.  Keep on calendaring.
