Nicolas Vérité Application 2007
I haven't read the other applications, just copied the suggested structure, so that I'm not influenced by their ideas ;-)
As said in User:Nyco:
- Jabber ID: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Blog: http://nyco.wordpress.com/
- Location: Paris, France
- ClaimID: http://claimid.com/nyco
My real nickname is Nÿco ;-)
Born in 1974 in France, I had my first computer I shared with my brother in... 1984, an Amstrad CPC6128 (with 128 KB of RAM and double-sided floppy disks of 2 x 178 KB).
I discovered both the internet, Linux and the free software in 1996, while studying electronics at INSA of Toulouse (south-west of France), an engineering school.
I don't remember when I discovered first ICQ, then Yahoo! Messenger and then Jabber, but I recently got involved maybe two or three years ago in the french Jabber community at JabberFR.org.
In parallel, I worked during three years as an Oracle DBA in a medium-sized, then three years as a Linux/Unix system engineer in a small-sized open source company, and since 2007 as an opensource consultant/integrator in a big-sized services company.
I also am moderator of LinuxFR.org a higher-quality-than-Slashdot Slashdot-like website, and of course a wikipedist.
As said just above, I usually work on JabberFR.org.
Sorry guys, I can't code. Code is useful, but there are so many other things that are useful.
Though, I sometimes report bugs and suggest feature requests... that help other code better.
- I have heavily contributed to: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jabber
- I have contributed to the JabberFR Wiki: http://wiki.jabberfr.org
- I try to explain, document and find info about Jabber/XMMP and the related areas in my blog at: http://nyco.wordpress.com/
- I try to give talks
- I write news and journals on: http://linuxfr.org
- And I made many tiny contributions of all forms
Plans for the future
- Make people know and understand
- Maybe make some of them make the switch
- Find the killer-app that will make them switch
- Understand, document and share
- Try to see further
- I did one on Jabber clients at Solutions Linux
- I will do another one at the LSM
- I plan to do one for Parinux, the Paris area LUG
Jabber - Why I like it
Because, it's fun, modern, rapidly-evolving and has a bright future... and because it's an open standard.
Why I'm applying
- To stay in constant contact with Jabber/XMPP technologies
- To follow their evolutions
- To propose improvements
- To provide feedback
- Closer than what I did until now
