 Posted on August 10, 2010 |  3 minutes |  XMPP Summit |  admin

The XMPP Standards Foundation will hold its seventh “XMPP Summit” meeting on July 20 and 21, 2009, in San Jose, California, USA. Thanks to the generosity of O’Reilly, the Summit will be held on the premises of OSCON 2009.

Monday, July 20: Interop & Hackfest

Here we will focus on interoperability testing and software hacking, including work on automated testing tools. Bring your laptop and your code! Some impromptu technology discussions are likely, as well.

Monday Evening: Developer Dinner

On the evening of Monday the 20th we will hold our traditional “developer dinner” so that people can get to each other in a more casual atmosphere. Location yet to be determined.

As at Summit #6, we are looking for donations to help fund the festivities. Depending on how many people donate, the cost per person might be quite minimal. The following companies and individuals have volunteered to donate to the cause:


Unless you tell us otherwise, we will assume that you want to join us for dinner if you are participating in the Summit.

Tuesday, July 21: Technology Brainstorming

We will devote Tuesday to high-bandwidth discussions about gaps in the XMPP protocol stack, operational challenges, and other hot topics. However, software hacking will probably continue in the background.


The following people have indicated that they are likely to participate. If you would like to attend, please post a message to the summit@xmpp.org discussion list and tell us whether you want to join us for dinner on Monday evening, including your dietary restrictions (if any).

The XMPP Summit will take place in room B3 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, 150 West San Carlos Street, San Jose, California. We typically begin the day at 10:00 and finish around 17:00. Hotel information can be found on the OSCON site.

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 MUST sign in for a free “floor pass” with O’Reilly when you arrive at the convention center.


The XMPP Summit is free. However, we reserve the right to ask for donations to help pay for food. You do want to eat, don’t you?
