Blog post by HarshitSharma on Tue, 2022-05-24 00:36


Hello! I’m Harshit Sharma (GitHub : harshit-sharma-gits) a 2nd year BTech Undergrad from Harcourt Butler Technical University (HBTU), Kanpur. I will be working on improving the Calendar Application which was developed under GSoC 2017 by Akshay Agarwal.

My mentors for this project are Niels Sascha Reedijk and Humdinger.

Here is the link to my Proposal I am really excited for this project!

Introduction to the project

A Calendar application is a must have application for any operating system and is beneficial for end users as well as developers. Having a feature-rich Calendar might not sound like a big deal, but it can drastically impact your performance at work and personal life.

I will be working on below mentioned features :

  • Reminders Utility
  • Calendar Profiles
  • Search Utility
  • CalDav Integration

I have discussed the possibilities of this project with the community, and got some really useful insights on this thread.

I would be finalizing the discussion in the upcoming weeks, so suggestion from you all would be highly valuable!

I would keep the blog updated regarding the progress of the project.
