Ian Paterson Application 2008
I have been interested in Jabber since 1999 and developing Jabber applications full-time since 2001. I have served as a member of the XSF Council since 2005.
I am the primary author of XEP-0116, XEP-0187, XEP-0188, XEP-0200, XEP-0210, XEP-0217 (all Encrypted Sessions), XEP-0124, XEP-0206 (both XMPP/HTTP), XEP-0136 (Message Archiving), XEP-0059 (Results Set Management), XEP-0155 (Stanza Session Negotiation), XEP-0189 (Public Key Publishing), XEP-0158 and XEP-0159 (both anti-SPIM).
I have previously contributed to the development of many other protocols as a member of the XSF Council and by posting to the Standards-JIG mailing list (and occasionally to other lists).
Current Software Development Activities
During summers 2006 and 2007 I mentored Jan Sembera and Brendon Taylor to support their development of open source Encrypted Sessions code (see XEP-0116).
I gave a presentation on using XMPP to develop Rich Internet Applications at FOSDEM 2007.
