  • Creator of the XMPP-FTW library
  • Spoken at many events about using XMPP in web applications http://lanyrd.com/profile/lloydwatkin/
  • Taken over development of the node-xmpp projects
  • Lead developer of the buddycloud server
  • Lots of various other small projects based on XMPP
  • Organiser of the XMPP UK meetups (although its been awhile)
  • Organised an XMPP hackathon
  • Organised an XSF summit-type thing

Plans with XMPP are to continue working to improve Buddycloud, get node-xmpp-* projects to their 1.0.0 release, continue to release more modules with xmpp-ftw, and some other interesting projects on the backlog.

I'm all about making XMPP more accessible to (web) developers in order to increase its usage.
