Personal

I am Aaron Axelsen and I am reapplying for JSF Membership. I am also an Instructional Technologist at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, I have currently been running a jabber server which is rapidly being used in classes and other areas across campus. Our next action plan is to further test integration with D2L, start looking at ways to offer support chat, investigate clusting and to work with Jive to hopefully get better support for large LDAP directories.

I am also the HSA for Modevia Web Services, where we are great supporters of the open source community.

Code

I have been a regular contributor to the open source community for the last 7-8 years. I contributed several SourceForge projects in different areas. I am also very active in php/perl web development, and perl and unix shell scripting. I contributed jabber installation documentation and worked with startup scripts. I also worked along with other transport developer's debugging code and repairing glitches.

Future

I plan to continue to provide documentation along with any other little scripts I come up with. We are currently pushing jabber at UW-Whitewater, and I plan to share anything I come up with to make life easier. I hope to see jabber catch on even more!

Why

I am reapplying for a JSF membership because I use it everyday It has great potential to be better than it already is. I would enjoy offering input involved with jabber implementation in a University environment, along with additional features to further improve the jabber instant messaging system. I am willing and able to offer feedback to developers to aid them in enhancing their final product.
