Announcing the CalConnect Calendaring Developer's Guide

CalConnect has recently published its new Calendaring Developer’s Guide as a read-only wiki at http://devguide.calconnect.org.  

We have created an initial outline of topics that we expect will be of value, and added content for a subset of them such as creating a simple event, together with examples.  At this point we feel the Guide has enough content to be published and useful, but it is still incomplete.

CalConnect Blog Superceded by New Website News Feed

We have superceded our old blog, calconnect.wordpress.com, with the news feed from our new website, www.calconnect.org/news.  We've also put a redirect in on the old blog site so anyone with a bookmark to the old blog will wind up on the new news feed.  In the process, virtually all of the old blog entries have been ported into the new site so you can still reference old blog entries.
