Revision as of 21:06, 11 July 2011

My name is Ralph Meijer (ralphm) and I'm applying for the continuance of my XSF membership.

I've been an active member of the Jabber community since late 2000. I have co-authored a number of XEPs, all around publish-subscribe technologies, and contributed to many others, as well as the XMPP specification submitted to the IETF. Futhermore I have served on the XMPP Council since 2004.

I currently work for Mediamatic Lab, on open standards and XMPP, and keep a personal weblog.

Services

I maintain the following Jabber related services:

  • Planet Jabber - *The* aggregate blog of Jabber related blogs.
  • Mimí­r - A Jabber enabled news service / web-based news reader.

Code

My most visible contributions in terms of code are:

  • Idavoll - A (framework for building a) server-side component that implements a XEP-0060 compliant publish-subscribe service.
  • The XMPP support in the Twisted Framework, of which I am the current maintainer.
  • Wokkel - A library on top of Twisted that provides XMPP extension protocol implementations.
  • anyxmpp - A code-as-a-node XMPP Publish-Subscribe interface to anymeta

Evangelism

I am a strong promoter of Jabber related technologies and have been given presentations at various conferences, mostly in Europe. Also, I've organized an Jabber/XMPP developers' room and XSF booth at FOSDEM on several occasions, among others.

Why?

I would like retain my membership to continue my work within the XSF for the European continent. I will also re-apply for the next term of the XMPP Council.
