Time: 10:45am - 11:30am

Jabber/XMPP technologies are open standards for secure XML messaging, presence, collaboration, and multimedia exchange. Jabber open-source code was first released in 1999 and the core Jabber protocols have been standardized through the IETF under the name XMPP.

Jabber/XMPP technologies are used by the likes of Google Talk, Apple, Sun, HP, Oracle, FedEx, EDS, large telcos, Wall Street investment banks, the U.S. Department of Defense, universities, companies, and individuals worldwide. And Jabber is used for much more than instant messaging. We'll look at real-world case studies for voice over IP (VoIP), content syndication, gaming, whiteboarding, network management, geolocation, and more.

We'll discuss the state of the art in Jabber clients, servers, code libraries, and look at applications that could benefit from incorporating the secure, spam-free, real-time, presence-aware goodness of Jabber/XMPP.

Whether you want to use, deploy, or develop real-time communication systems, this talk tells you how to get started with Jabber.
