Get together, and get hacking! One of the fun ways to improve the KDE PIM codebase is to get together for a hackfest. Since most -- but by no means all -- of the KDE PIM developers are in Western Europe, getting together isn't all that hard to do. KDE PIM has a great tradition of focused developer meetings. It started at Osnabrück in 2003 and has grown into having several meetings a year.

The Akonadi team met during the Halloween weekend at the Linuxhotel in Essen, Germany to prepare Akonadi for its next release together with KDE 4.2. A special focus was on migration of the existing PIM data based on the old KResources infrastructure to Akonadi.

KDE PIM New Year Meeting 2005
Several KDE PIM hackers met again at Osnabrück on the first weekend in 2005 for hacking on and discussing about the personal information management applications of KDE.
During the coding marathon week at aKademy 2004 at Ludwigsburg the KDE PIM team took the opportunity to hold a meeting to discuss the further development of KDE PIM. See the meeting minutes for details.
The meeting was only one element of the gathering of KDE PIM people at aKademy. There were also lots of informal meetings, joined hacking, spontaneous beer-drinking and other interesting and enjoyable activities. Have a look at the aKademy coverage, the developers blogs or the CVS commits to get some more information what happened there.
