Online Calendar, Google Style

April 14th, 2006 · No Comments

If you haven’t heard already, Google just released an online calendar web application. It has all of the slick interface items that you have come to expect from Google. But was makes this offering particularly interesting is the ability to share public and private calendars with your friends and co-workers in much the same way as Microsoft Outlook. In fact, rumor has it that Google is working on an interface to link in data from your Outlook calendar.

One other interesting item here is the use of natural language processing to create new calendar items. Type in the phrase “Lunch today at 11:30” and it automatically creates an appointment for 11:30am titled lunch. This is a great example for other developers to follow: Use the context of the users request to extrapolate the actions they want to perform.
