Ralph Meijer Application 2011
My name is Ralph Meijer (ralphm) and I'm applying for the continuance of my XSF membership.
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.
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
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.
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.
