Report on CalConnect Test Event and Developers Forum XLI, January 29-31, 2018

1.  Report

The event was hosted by Oath in Sunnyvale, California, January 29-31, 2018

In attendance for this interoperability event and developers forum were:

Despite the small attendance we managed to cover a number of topics.

There was some work being done with ical4j as we continue to try to move forward to a version based on the latest from Ben Fortuna. Some members have heavily modified older versions but are getting closer. We intend to create a clone with some or all of the members’ changes which can be used as a staging point for pushing them up to Ben.

There was some discussion on the work that is going on with vCard or its replacement. There are still questions on how to represent all the desired groups of information. It seems the discussions helped clarify some points.

There was more work trying to get the CalDAV tester running. Anuj from Oath got Darwin and the tester running together in record time and then proceeded to run tests against their server.

There was more work on updating the developers guide.

In addition we were working on getting vPoll running again as there was to be a demonstration in the main conference following.

We should remind potential attendees that the developers forum and test event is as much about detailed discussions on points of implementation as it is about testing. It provides an opportunity to discuss those small details. If you do have something to test or develop then come early and get advice on the best path to take.
