Dave Cridland

This contains a set of info about me, including contact details, work, etc.

Contact Details

Where?

I live in Carmarthen, in West Wales (which is an area of Wales in the Southwest). Wales is part of the UK, but isn't England. And I'm English, not Welsh. Gosh, it's confusing, isn't it?

IETF Work

Mostly IMAP, although I did quite a bit on ACAP, and know my way around SMTP. I've also a passing familiarity with SASL, including some work on SCRAM.

XSF Work

Council: 2018 (Chair), 2017 (Chair), 2016, 2015, 2014, 2009 (Partial), 2008, 2007 Board: 2015, 2013, 2011 (Chair)

Employment

Currently "Messaging" at Forward Health, previously Threads (briefly), Surevine, Inky, and Isode. All the jobs I've had since sometime in Isode have been XMPP-related except at Inky (standards-based email) and Threads (so I left).

Software

Done stuff with Openfire, Prosody, and M-Link in my past. Also done a surprising amount with SliXMPP. Created Metre from scratch. All of this in "Critical Messaging" applications.

Currently working on a Secret Project.
