KDE PIM at Akademy 2008

Since, at the time of writing, I have another six hours of train journey before me on my way back from Akademy 2008 I decided to spend my remaining battery power on writing a blog about the event.

As an executive summary let it be said that the conference and all activitied during the week were really well organized and I think that every attendee will agree that it was lots of fun.

We've fallen into a trap and can't get out, help!

So some guy from Nokia named Ari Jaaksi was speaking at some conference and said something along the lines of open source developers needing to be "educated" about consumer restriction technologies like DRM.

While I agree with Ted Tso that these words weren't chosen wisely, I believe that the actual message got "lost in translation".

Double trouble...

...that's what my friends all call me.

Actually they don't but since I am a huge fan of Lynyrd Skynyrd and this blog entry is closely related to the previous one I am (ab-)using yet another of their song titles.

Free Bird yeah!

Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks, but you already knew that.
Will Stephenson rocks as well and you quite likely also already knew that.

Free Bird is one the reasons why Lynyrd Skynyrd rocks and one of the reasons why Will Stephenson rocks is that he took over the gargantuan task of moving the Akonadi server to is KDE independent location in kdesupport.

Akonadi's Google Summer of Code

Other mentors have already blogged about their GSoC projects, so I am going to do the same for Akonadi.

Basically Akonadi got three slots from KDE and one from OpenChange.

Houston, you have a visitor

Well, not yet.

I am currently at Graz airport, about to begin a journey to Austin, Texas, where I will be attending the Linux Collaboration Summit.
Special thanks go to the Linux Foundation for covering my travelling costs and KDE e.V. for the hotel, specifically Ian Monroe who took the burden of doing the hotel reservation.

Akonadi, the GLib client library and the Evolution Data Server

Based on reactions to my previous blog entry I'd like to add a bit of context regarding the GSoC idea of implementing a GLib/GObject based client library for Akonadi.

Akonadi and the Google Summer of Code

Since the Akonadi related applications for GSoC so far have been mostly about interfacing with external PIM data storage systems, e.g. Google's web based apps, I'd like to a bit of advertising for two other things we'd really like to have somebody working on.

Migrating to Akonadi, Part 2

Additionally to the migration path for PIM applications there are similar options for the actual data access facilities, i.e. the addressbook and calendar plugins traditionally used to access PIM data in local files, groupware servers and so on.

Migrating to Akonadi

As promised I am going to try to present the work I have been doing over the last couple of weeks in a less developer centric way.
