Virtual Session: CalDAV Standards, Implementation, Q&A -- 3 MARCH 2022
CalConnect is planning a virtual session via Zoom to provide some assistance and information for developers working on implementations of CalDAV.
In attendance we will have developers who have been working on the protocol almost since the beginning and those working on newer implementations. We hope to provide answers to some of the problems developers may be facing and also provide information about standards and current practice - some of which is undocumented.
The CalConnect Nottingham Conference has been rescheduled once more, to October 10-14, 2022, and Virtual Conferences planned for Spring 2022.
All other arrangements for the Nottingham conference (host, venue, conference hotel) remain unchanged. The Board has reached this decision after reviewing the current status of the pandemic, as available from the WHO and CDC, and concluded that the chance of having a successful in-person conference before the autumn was essentially zero.
