About a year ago the phabricator tasks of Plasma Mobile were extensively revamped. We tried to make clear the objective of each task, providing helpful resources and facilitating onboarding. Looking at the features needed to reach the “Plasma Mobile 1.0” milestone, the calendar application was sticking out. So, Calindori was born (even though this name was coined some months later).
As soon as I offered my mobile phone number for the proof of concept of sending an SMS from a phone running Plasma Mobile, I felt like a student in the Stanford Research Institute expecting the very first message via the ARPANET from UCLA . OK, that’s certainly an exaggeration, but it shows that the sprint, except the technical achievements, it was also full of community spirit and sometimes, emotions.
