My name is Artur Hefczyc and I am currently living in UK, Cambridge. I am applying for membership to the JFS.

History

I am 36 old software enginner living in Cambridge, UK. Apart from my professional job I used to participate to a few open source projects: GeoTools, GenerGuide, WTTools and the last one, Jabber/XMPP related: Tigase Server. Most of my profesional work was around of implementation of network servers and network protocols.


Apart from software development work I wrote also a few articles about working with emacs and XML: "Emacs and JDEE", "Tools and methods for XML" and "Editing XML files".

Software development is not just a way to earn money for me. I like doing it, I enjoy creating something new and I have a big fun when I can see as other people use my software.

A few years ago I found information about new IM protocol - Jabber. As that was (and still is?) the first fully open protocol and the idea about distributed IM network seemed very interesting I started to use it. After some time, using Jabber client was not enough for me. I decided I want to have my own server installed.

About 20 months ago I decided I can use my experience and knowledge to develop my own implementation of Jabber/XMPP server. That was start of Tigase project.

At the moment Tigase projects includes not just Jabber/XMPP server but also dedicted XML parser and test suite with built-in scripting language.

Jabber/XMPP Projects

About 18 months ago I started to work

Code

Plans for the future

Jabber - Why I like it

Why I'm applying
