XSF and GSoC 2022 Logo

The XMPP Standards Foundation (XSF) participates as a hosting organisation in the Google Summer of Code 2022.

As with many others, this year two contributors will work on an open-source software projects in the XMPP real-time communication technology ecosystem during the summer.

XMPP - the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol

XMPP is the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol, a set of open technologies for instant messaging, presence, multi-party chat, voice and video calls, collaboration, lightweight middle-ware, content syndication, and generalized routing of XML data. XMPP was originally developed in the Jabber open-source community to provide an open, decentralized alternative to the closed instant messaging services at that time.

Google Summer of Code 2022

The Google Summer of Code is an international annual program in which Google awards stipends to contributors who successfully complete a free and open-source software coding project during the summer. Project ideas are listed by host organizations involved in open-source software development, though students can also propose their own project ideas.

Participating projects

  • Converse.js: Converse is a web-based XMPP client. It has different modes, allowing it to be integrated into existing websites, used as a webchat for a specific chatroom, or used as a full-fledged XMPP client on its own. There is also an electron-based version available.
