The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF), in which a number of Isode staff are actively involved, will be holding its sixth XMPP Summit in Brussels, Belgium at the same time as FOSDEM 2009 (6-9 February).
As part of the summit, the XSF will be hosting talks and demonstrations in a devroom on Saturday, February 7th, with one of the presenters being Isode's Dave Cridland. Full details of the summit can be found at http://xmpp.org/summit/summit6.shtml.
We'll post Dave's slides and a summary of his talk (Presenting Information Flow in Deployed XMPP Clients) on this blog during the week following the event.
Isode's commitment to Open Standards isn't limited to making sure that our products adhere to them. As individuals, a number of Isode staff volunteer their time and expertise on bodies such the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF). They do this with the full support of the company which sees the success of Open Standards as crucial to our continuing commercial success.
The latest iteration of the Open Standards page, which lists active drafts and over 100 RFCs authored or edited by Isode staff, clearly illustrates our long-term commitment to encouraging the development and maintenance of these standards.
