Information about XMPP Summit #9

The ninth XMPP Summit will be held at OSCON 2010 in Portland, Oregon (USA) on Monday July 19 and Tuesday July 20, 2010.

This is a geeky meeting with brainstorming, interop testing, code hacking, lightning talks, and other such activities.


The location is the Oregon Convention Center. There is no preferred hotel, but there are plenty choose from in Portland.

The Summit is in room D133 at the Convention Center.

Attendance at the Summit is free and you do not need to register for OSCON in order to participate in the XMPP Summit. OSCON is a great conference and we encourage you to attend! However, if you want to participate only in the XMPP Summit, you can just come to room D133.

For transportation, use Portland's MAX light rail service. The Convention Center stop is your friend. :)

Day One Summary

After a brief welcome and introductions the attendees created the Agenda using the barcamp style.

First, the group set up infrastructure for Interop testing. Jack E. helped by setting up a local CA Server and Joe set up DNS and DHCP while the great guys from &yet provided network hubs and patch cables. This allowed our testing to be done all on a private network, using example.com as our base DNS domain.

Once the servers were set up and running, we then retrieved the appropriate certificates that Jack E. had created and installed them into each server. This took longer than expected, as getting each server/OS to import the CA certificate to its trust store, etc. was troublesome.

Once basic server operation was up we tried to login to each server with PSI and Gajim (they just happened to be the most prevalent multi-account supporting clients we all had) and then moved on to testing BOSH and CORS. BOSH setup and testing continued until the break for lunch.

While some folks were getting BOSH testing working (i.e. once Bear finally learned how to read the Prosody docs!) Jack was also testing S2S unencrypted connections for those servers that were ready to test.

After lunch we had some short presentations from Joe on some of the new XEP's he would like to see worked on (especially Carbons, XEP-0280) and then we had some demos of &yet's browser-based client, DragonForce and OneSocialWeb.
