The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source -

* Birthday Calendar Adapter

market download Description
Birthday Adapter provides birthdays, anniversaries, and other events from your contacts as a real calendar, which is displayed in your standard Android calendar application.
To my knowledge, this is the first implementation that implements birthdays as a calendar displayed in Android's Calendar app.
All other apps only displays their own lists but have no real integration!

If you want to test this app, install the free version:

Known bugs
? Reminder do not work correctly on Android 2.3
? Devices with Android 4.1 and all version of Samsung Galaxy S4 have a bug which causes Birthday Adapter to disable after reboots. Please install additionally:

? Total integration of birthdays, anniversaries, and other events from Android's contacts as a calendar
? Color picker for the birthday calendar
? Event Reminders
? Filter contact events based on account
