Mickaël Rémond Application 2023
I have been active in the Open Source community since 1993, mainly in French Linux non-profit organizations. In December 1998, the Erlang/OTP language and environment have been released under an Open Source license and I have been active in this community since then (Erlang User of the Year 2004 and author of the French Erlang book published by Eyrolles).
My interest in Jabber gets back to 2000 when I was working at a company called IDEALX. I introduced Erlang as one of the main development languages in this company. The company won a big project for large-scale deployment of Jabber Instant Messaging for the French Internet Service Provider LibertySurf. The architecture was built around Jabberd with a lot of Erlang code for clustering, scalability, and high-availability (See: The migration from Erlang to OTP: A case study of a heavy duty TCP/IP Client Server application for the summary of the architecture, from an Erlang point of view). At this time, I was in charge of the development of an XML-based EAI (Enterprise Applications Integration system) called Buster.
Since 2005, my involvement in the Jabber community increased, while founding ProcessOne, actively developing ejabberd and related components / software.
I have been involved in the XSF as a member from 2006 to 2009 and served the XSF board in 2009. I kept on working on ejabberd and other XMPP project since then, but I had to reduce my involvement in the community as I needed to focus on expanding and managing ProcessOne. However, this allowed me to gain a lot of experience on push notification service and mobile development, as an addition to server developments. I feel this experience can benefit the XSF.
I am still working on the server side today, working on ejabberd.
Evangelism / Why am I reapplying this year ?
I gave many talks on XMPP over the years I have been working on XMPP (More than 20 years) and plan to focus on XMPP promotion this year. For realtime messaging it is still the most versatile, well designed and scalable protocol. Developers are not aware of this, we need to spread the words and I would like to help more.
I am the founder and CEO of ProcessOne.
