Between long and tedious RFCs, web-based alternatives, and non-compliant proprietary apps, GNOME Calendar still stands as one of the best calendaring apps out there - even when considering expensive proprietary alternatives. There are many low and high level challenges in this problem space, but specially over the past two years, significant improvements were made. Let's learn about what are these challenges, what the milestones recently achieved, the tricky usability, accessibility, and compliance challenges that the calendaring domain has, and ideas for the future.
