dotNetCal on his way

This summer I started to develop dotNetCal the internet calendaring and scheduling program. Last month I came to state that XHTML-templates were ready and I had to create or choose proper XML schema for handling calendar data. Now after late nights searching and surfing I have come to conclusion that there is no any good/easy one. In fact everyone still uses old VCAL based format.

This summer I started to develop dotNetCal the internet calendaring and scheduling program.

However the RDF taskforce has been working on RDF to calendaring which seems very interesting, but I really have to admit that the W3C’s semantic web activity goes pretty hardcore when trying to figure out how to make real.

The taskforce plans to work on a modular and extensible RDF schema for calendar and schedule data. A major aim is to create a calendar format representation in XML/RDF drawing on initiatives such as the IETF’s iCalendar. The group will evaluate the RDF representation of XML schema data types proposed by the DAML initiative in creating this RDF/XML representation.

I have found out that probably hardest thing to do into web is a group internet calendaring and scheduling program. Now I?m kind of force to convert VCAL into well formed XML in order to continue development.
