Synchronizing the iPhone/iPad calendar with a MS SQL table

I am new to programming for the iPhone (and of course, the iPad). I want to know where to start if I want to create a utility/application that synchronizes the iPhone/iPad calendar appointments to a MS SQL Server table. What programming platform should I use and what language?

I don't think there is a direct way to do it..
And you have to follow the steps here:

1. Export Iphone / Ipad calendar to Outlook using iTunes
2. Export Calendar from outlook to CSV file.
3. Import CSV files to SQL Server using either Import/Export Wizard or OPENROWSET queries.
As for the platform and programming language you'll need iPhone SDK and Object C (have a look at the "iPhone Dev Centre" at

As for sync the iPhone Calendar, ask an iphon developer (I'm a PC not a Mac! ; )
You could create a web service which talks to MS SQL and then get your iPhone app to talk to the web service via SOAP and sync that way.
