I'm Jakob Schröter and I'm re-applying for XSF membership.

Note: This is basically a slightly updated copy of my 2007 application, as most of the info is still correct.

==About me==

I graduated from London South Bank University in 2005 (BEng Hons) and University of Applied Sciences, Bremen, Germany in 2007 (Diploma). I'm currently residing in Bremen, making a living as a self-employed software developer.

As a non-computer/XMPP-related activity, I play Lacrosse.

==Jabber/XMPP-related activities==

===Code===

I'm in the fortunate position to write code for/using XMPP on a daily basis in my projects. The one that is publicly visible is [http://camaya.net gloox], a C++ Jabber/XMPP library, which I'm the author and maintainer of. Most of my coding activities are related to this lib in one way or another.

===Non-Code===

I run a private Jabber server since 2003, and a public one since 2004.

So far, my contributions to the protocols were mostly nitpicking over typos, wrong/incomplete/misplaced examples, etc.

==Why I'm re-applying==

I'm fascinated by the ease-of-use and versatility of XMPP, and I intend to continue and extend my work with and for the protocol, in both the coding and non-coding areas. I believe that membership in the XSF can help me achieve this.

I'm interested in various XEPs and concepts, like end-to-end encryption/ESessions, Link-local Messaging and others, and I wish to contribute my experience in implementing them to the standards community.

==Contact==

If you have any questions about me or my application, feel free to contact me via Email or XMPP at js at camaya dot net.
