Winfried Tilanus application 2012
I am Winfried Tilanus, 41 years old and from the Netherlands.
I own a small company, tilanus.com. The core competence of it is facilitating "online psycho-social counselling". Most of the work we do is on developing HelpIM (see below) and hosting it. Beside that I do a bit of consulting. We work closely together with the e-hulp.nl foundation.
Activities for XSF
- In 2011 I coordinated the BOSH interop testing at the XMPP summit 10.
- I just started as co-maintainer of the BOSH XEPs (XEP-0124 and XEP-0206)
Why I want to be a XSF member
XMPP has been invaluable for my work. On top of that, being involved with the XSF (e.g. by participating on summits) has helped my work a lot. I have experienced the XMPP community as very open and helpful. I want my involvement to be reciprocal and contribute to the XMPP community and ecosystem. Becoming a member of the XSF is or me a way to show my involvement with XMPP more explicitly (and more formal).
