I am Ashley Ward and I am applying for XSF membership for the first time. :)


  • JID (Personal):
  • JID (Work):
  • Email (Personal):
  • Email (Work):


I have been involved with IT since I was a wee lad and code in various different languages, but gravitating more recently towards Java and Javascript.

In my current role I have been involved with the creation and deployment of a chat application for one of our clients based on emite/hablar which got me involved in XMPP as a technology a few years ago. More recently I have also been involved in the Buddycloud project.


Work on the XMPP Protocol

Why I'm applying

  • I really like XMPP as a protocol (I'm a rare anglebracketophile), and can see it becoming an increasingly essential internet protocol in the future, and really want to be involved in shaping that. I also really enjoyed being with everyone and getting involved at the recent summit, and want more of that :)
