Implementation of Additional Event Sources for GNOME Shell's Time & Date drop-down

Short Description

The project is about the implementation of additional event sources which were part of the new design but have not yet been implemented. As per the Design, Time & Date drop-down should also have weather forecasts and birthday reminders. This project will aim at implementing those additional event sources.
I will work on this project under the mentor-ship of Florian Muellner.

Benefits of this project for GNOME

After the completion of this project, GNOME Shell's Time & Date drop-down would have weather forecast & Birthday reminders and possibly a new design for Music controls and notifications as well, as the special notification type which was present earlier was removed by the redesign.
