Our very own @danc was voted into the XMPP Standards Foundation Council not to long ago!
The XMPP Standards Foundation is an independent, nonprofit standards development organisation whose primary mission is to define open protocols for presence, instant messaging, and real-time communication and collaboration on top of the IETF’s Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). Most of the projects that we’re maintaining in the Ignite Realtime community have a strong dependency on XMPP.
The XMPP Council, that Dan now is a member of, is the technical steering group that approves XMPP Extension Protocols. With that, he’s now on the forefront of new developments within the XMPP community! Congrats to you, Dan!
