I've been very quiet on here for a few months, and the reason is (of course) because I've been doing other things. No surprise there, I guess!
What I've been doing, first of all, is writing aCal, an Android CalDAV client with a lot of help from Chris Noldus. It's probably fair to say that Chris did most of the heavy lifting while I learned Java, did most of the UI & graphic design, and the low-level CalDAV synchronisation and geeky calendaring code. This is now available in the Android market for NZD$2.00 to help us fund further development and in a few days (or a couple of weeks) I'll get the source code up somewhere public (probably Gitorious) and it will be licensed GPLv3... When I get a moment - although refer to title :-)
Of course on top of that I'd already committed to a second year of handling the sponsorship job for Linux.Conf.AU, so a fair amount of January was taken up with preparing for, and attending LCA in Brisbane where I took a lot of photos. LCA was, as always, a blast, and all credit to the fantastic team over in Brisbane who really came together when it seemed it was all going to fall apart after the flooding. This seems to be six long months of disasters around this part of the world, although until Tuesday I guess we thought we'd escaped the worst of it in New Zealand.
After LCA I snuck home for a few days before flying off in the other direction, to UC Berkeley, for CalConnect XX where I managed to get in some great testing of the new Android CalDAV client, some excellent standards discussions, more photos and (even) a few days sightseeing.
I've been home for a week from that now - just barely long enough to hug the kids, really - and today I am in the air once more, off to CeBIT in Hannover where I have been lucky to be sponsored a free booth in the Open Source Lounge by Linux New Media AG. My original travel sponsor slipped through the cracks, but I was fortunate that InternetNZ agreed to help fund me instead.
If you're coming to CeBIT please do stop by the Morphoss table in the Open Source Lounge (Hall 2, F44) for a chat about DAViCal and Android - and anything else you want to talk about! I'll be there all week :-)
And if I have some quiet time in that week (yeah, right!) I'll be trying to push out a new DAViCal release, which is overdue really, since the last one was two months ago.
