Copied-pasted and edited Nicolas Vérité Application 2007.

Personal stuff


  • In 1996, I discovered both the internet, Linux, Free Software and IRC
  • (I don't remember when) I discovered first ICQ, then Yahoo! Messenger (at that time Yahoo! Pager) and then... Jabber !
  • Then I just watched Jabber grow
  • XMPP was published as an IETF standard in 2004
  • I got involved in the french Jabber community at

Jabber/XMPP Projects


  • None. Sorry. I know only two languages: french and english.
  • I sometimes report bugs and suggest features... that help other people code (better)
  • Does wiki code count for code?


Talks and chats

Where I'm mostly active

All my slides on SlideShare

Plans for the future

  • Make people know
  • Make people understand
  • Make people switch
  • Make people adopt
  • Find the killer-app
  • Understand, document and share

Why I like XMPP

Because, it's:

  • fun
  • modern
  • rapidly-evolving
  • an open standard
  • got an open and open-minded community
  • the féderating IMP system

Why I'm re-applying

  • Because it's cool to be a member
  • Because it counts as a vote in XSF
  • Because I'm an active evangelist and I want to do more (even if it's not easy to contribute time)
  • Because you're taken more seriously when you propose talks if you're an XSF member
  • To stay in constant contact with XMPP technologies
  • To follow their evolutions
