Curtis King Application 2008
My name is Curtis King and I'm applying for XSF membership.
I have been working as a system programmer or a developer for close to 20 years now. I have written a number of commercial IMAP/POP3 servers, the latest being Isode's M-Box. I have also written a distributed phone control system using SIP and Avaya's cvlan protocols. Plus numerous other distributed applications using various message passing protocols like BEEP.
I work full time for Isode Limited as the Architect for M-Box and M-Link.
I designed and implemented the Isode XMPP server, M-Link.
Plans for the future
Continued work on M-Link including adding clustering support and XMPP over HF radio.
XMPP - Why I like it
I like using my own code for the services I run, so now I can use IM. It opens some interesting options to explore.
Why I'm applying
I could give some polically correct answer, but now I have a dog in the fight so it's nice to have some voice on the standard. No matter how small.
