Title for the presentation:

Open Source Personal Information Management: The Kroupware Project.


The talk will give an account of the the Kroupware project. The Kroupware project was executed on behalf of and paid for by the German Federal Agency for IT Security. It's aim was to bring the functionality of email clients (notably KMail, mutt, and Mozilla) together with groupware functionality as exemplified in KOrganizer. From the beginning, the Kroupware project was under extreme time pressure, and I will both explain the technical details as well as how we approached the project to achieve a considerable groupware functionality in less than two months.


Required knowledge

Interest in Personal Information Management (PIM). Experiences with MS-Outlook and/or the KDE Desktop Environment is useful, but not mandatory. Some parts of the talk will be technical and require some C++ knowledge.
