On 1-2 February, FOSDEM, was held in Brussels, Belgium. As usual the XMPP community coordinated the Real-Time Lounge, a corner where several open source projects around Real Time Communication can present themselves. At the XMPP booth there were lots of nice conversations with FOSDEM visitors. The easy onboarding of Snikket was one of the eye catchers at the booth. In the Real Time developers room thee was a talk about the modularity of the XMPP protocol by Winfried Tilanus.
As usual, before FOSDEM a part of the XMPP community gathered for XMPP summit 24. Over the course of two days many aspects of the XMPP protocol were discussed, including onboarding, 'rich presence', several aspects of encryption, MIX, Bind/SASL, Stickers and rich markup. The attendants regarded this summit as very productive and many of the discussions already resulted in proposed protocol extensions and patches to existing extensions.
