QML Calendar components - write and modify support

I started working on those first in a very crude form during the October 2012 PIM sprint. At that time it was a proof of concept to see if - ultimately - KOrganizer could be re-written using QML.

In the March of 2013 PIM sprint i basically started all over with some help of a few other folks to get real QML components in a not so hacky manner. Those components - while still very hacky - proved to be very powerful already. By the time i'm writing this, the components can do all the reading stuff and work very well.

During the next sprint i plan to fully implement:

  • Creation of new events trough QML
  • Modifying events through QML
  • Port the components to Qt 5/KF5 if akonadi can run there already.

Discussions

Mark Gaiser

Where should akonadi bases QML components live?

It's surprisingly difficult to find a right place to put akonadi QML components. Once can argue for kdepim-runtime since QML is runtime stuff. One can also argue for kdelibs since it's basically still a library only in QML. I'd like to discuss this and make a final decision.

KHolidays2

The march 2013 PIM sprint had quite a bit of discussion for the next KHolidays version. The idea is to have it as an Akonadi resource. I'd like to discuss this forther and make a first draft implementation for this. I can't do this alone and will need John Layt and someone else that knows how to make akonadi resource to get started.

KDE PIM to Qt5/frameworks

(don't know if i keep this item, i might remove it later) Slowly but steady key KDE parts are moving towards Qt5 with the frameworks initiative. I think it's time to start porting the KDE PIM stack to Qt5/frameworks. This affects the following git repositories:

The sprint will take place in Red Hat office in Brno, Czech republic.

Travel

By plane

Brno

You can fly directly to Brno from London Standsted (Ryanair), Eindhoven (Wizz Air) or Moscow (UTair Aviation).

Vienna

If you can't fly directly to Brno, we recommend flying to Vienna and then taking a bus. There is a Student Agency bus going every 2-3 hours right from the airport terminal and it goes directly to Brno centre. You need to book a seat in the bus, please do it as soon as possible on http://www.studentagency.eu/ (Wien -> Brno). The journey takes about 2 hours and the ticket is 9 EUR (and there is a touch screen in front of every seat where you can watch a movie or listen to music. Also you get a free hot beverage and Czech newspaper)

Prague

Of course you can fly to Prague too. You have to take the Airport Express bus to get from the airport to the main train station. The bus goes every 20 minutes, it takes about 45 minutes and the fair is 2.5 EUR (you can buy ticket at the driver). From the main train station you can either take an Euro City train (goes every hour, takes 2 hours 40 minutes and costs 8 EUR), or use metro to get to Florenc (one station) and from there take Student Agency bus to Brno (book your tickets here as soon as possible: http://www.studentagency.eu/ (Praha->Brno)). The bus takes 2.5 hours and costs 8.20 EU.

By Train

If you live close enough you can also take Euro City train from Berlin (7.5 hours), Vienna (2 hours) or Budapest (4 hours).

Public Transport

In Brno you can take trolleybus, bus or tram to get around the city. You can buy a ticket in yellow machines that are at most stops. If you find yourself at a stop without the yellow machine, try to look around as they are sometimes hidden behind a corner, or you can buy the ticket from driver (but they are more expensive).

For you only two tickets are relevant: 15 minutes (the cheapest one) for 20 CZK (~0.7 EUR) or 60 minutes (the second cheapest) for 25 CZK (~1 EUR). You can change as many time as you want. If you are not sure whether you can make it in 15 minutes, better buy the 60 minutes one. That's enough time to get you almost across the entire city and it's not that much expensive.

At night there are night buses going every 30 minutes (from 23:00 till 05:00). All nigh lines meet at 25 and 55 minutes past the hour and they all leave at the half hour or hour from the main train station. The tickets and prices are the same.

Venue

To get to the Red Hat office (and to the hotel) from the main train station, take tram number 12 in direction Technologický Park and get out at station Červinkova (20 minutes journey). At night take night line number 99, same direction, same station.

The Red Hat offices are right at the station. The sprint will take place in the second building (orange one with red top), which is behind the white one. Entrace is on the right side. Go up to 4th floor and ring the bell or ring the number that will be printed at the door, someone will come to open. If you feel lost, you can ask at reception in both buildings and they will direct you.

Accommodation

We recommend booking a room in the A Sport Hotel. It's just 5 minutes walk from the office, it's quite cheap and it's very nice. If you want to book the room yourself, please do it as soon as possible (if you want to share the room with someone, you have to arrange it yourself). For the rest (if you tick "need accommodation" on sprints.kde.org) we will book the rooms (and you just pay when you leave).

The prices are

  • single room: 46 EUR (incl. breakfast)
  • double room: 59 EUR (incl. breakfast)
  • triple room: 80 EUR (incl. breakfast)
  • quadruple room: 101 EUR (incl. breakfast)
