The XMPP Blog

Summer by the (XML) Stream

The XMPP Standards Foundation will once again be participating in the Google Summer of Code for 2007. What is a standards organization doing in the Summer of Code? Well, the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) emerged from the Jabber open-source community and we still have many active open-source projects. Plus as previously mentioned our community is a cohesive blend of open standards, commercial organizations, and open-source developers.

Here at the XSF we usually focus on the open standards part of the equation, but we actively work to encourage the creation of open-source code, too.

So check out out project ideas and send in an application!

UPDATE: If you apply, ignore the mention of the application template -- you do not need to fill that out in order to apply!
