Well I hope everyone that attended has been looking around at the various solutions out there and can bring their recommendation to the table this Friday at 2:00.

As far as the Berkeley project goes, I got a response:
Hi Brett,

Good to hear from you and glad to know of your interest.

To answer your questions: Yes, we do plan to release the application as open source. At this stage, we are focusing on building the application, and rolling it out in stages that will gradually open the door to all major departments on campus to join the network. We know that during the roll-out and ramp up, we'll encounter various bugs and, I suspect, a few issues we have not anticipated.

At the stage where we feel like we have a stable application, that would seem to be the sensible time to make this available to other universities. And at that stage, I would anticipate that we would be actively seeking programming collaborations.

I'm hoping that we can begin releasing the application and interacting with other universities within the next 12 months. We're on the cusp of hiring a calendar editor-coordinator to add to the team, and if we are fortunate, that could shorten these 12 months.


Not the best news, but also not the worst.

Calendar Schema Discussion

Postby newmedia » Thu Apr 27, 2006 12:13 pm

Don't know how this fits the schemas we've been talking about, can anyone shed light regarding the Berkley Project:

I found the SQL Ned referred to in the meeting:
http://ets-dev.berkeley.edu:8901/EventC ... ml#d0e3469
http://ets-dev.berkeley.edu:8901/EventC ... 5/apc.html

as well as a published page stating: "We also plan to make this application open-source and publicly available for any organization that would like to use it." http://ets-dev.berkeley.edu:8901/EventC ... 01s15.html

I've started drafting a response letter:
Hey Jeff,
Thanks for your response. Since my last message, our project team has evaluated the calendaring projects out there and have decided that the Berkeley Calendar Network is the calendar system that would best suit our needs.
We plan on moving forward, using the recommendations developed by Allison Bloodworth, and our target deadline is end of summer 2006. Our team has also decided that our system would be built in PHP-MySQL, and would be developed as open source.
Given that our deadline doesn't coincide very well with your targeted release date, is there anything you could provide to us to make sure our developments could be successfully merged once your work is ready to be released?
I understand that opening up your ongiong development would put quite an extra burden on your team right now. But I would like to see any system developed using the Berkeley calendar schema successfully merged with your project once your work is ready to be fully released.
Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time,
Brett Bieber


Send me suggestions for changes...

I've also started a wiki page outlining some of the work to be done and some target dates. Please help build this document....

response letter

I think the email looks great. But I'm not so sure about the 'whether we praise them enough' part..

Has anything come from this, I missed the last meeting? Has there been a response to the e-mail?

Sorry for keeping you out of the loop Todd.

Berkeley got back to us... no - they aren't ready to distribute their code at the present time. We DO have confirmation that we can use everything published online, their schema included to work on.

We have developed a questionnaire to be sent out to known event publishers, as well as e-news and posted on UNL Today. This questionnaire will gather input and give us some direction of which features require a higher priority to finish.

We've outlined the basic system that will be built and CIT has given us a CVS server to start working on.

The project, and more information is outlined here:
http://ucommdev.unl.edu/webdev/wiki/ind ... ar_Project

To get CVS access - users need to send their private ssh key to Yoon Wong at CIT.

Our next meeting is Friday at 2PM in the City Campus Union... where we will outline the progress and what's left to do. If users have questions in the meantime we're working in irc.freenode.net #unl_wdn
