Alexander Gnauck Application 2009

Jump to navigation Jump to search


I am 35 years old software developer located in Germany (Heilbronn). I met the jabber protocol in the year 2001, and the technology convinced me from the 1st day.

Since 2001 I'm programming, contributing and promoting XMPP. Since 2003 I'm a member of the XSF. Currently I'm serving the XMPP board for the 3rd term, and took over the secretary duties in 2006.

Active Jabber/XMPP Projects

  • agsXMPP SDK - cross platform open source (GPL or commercial) XMPP SDK written in c# for .NET
  • MatriX is a new set of XMPP libraries for .NET which I am working on and will be released very soon. One of the new features is web integration with Microsoft Silverlight 2

Admin Work

  • I'm one of the admins of the XSF servers.


  • I try to help newbies and other developers whenever possible.
  • I try to convince individuals and cooperates from the XMPP technologies for IM or real-time collaboration business applications.
  • My name is on no XEP yet, but I try to prove the XEPs and protocols with source code. I contribute to the protocols while implementing them, and discussions on the mailing lists or directly with the authors.

Why I'm reapplying

  • I want to contribute with my activities and long time XMPP experience to the XSF.
  • Bring more XMPP applications on mobile devices, cell phones and teh Web.
