Jabber is best known as "the Linux of instant messaging" -- an open, secure, ad-free alternative to consumer IM services like AIM, ICQ, MSN,and Yahoo. Under the hood, Jabber is a set of streaming XML protocols and technologies that enable any two entities on the Internet to exchange messages, presence, and other structured information in close to real time.

The core protocols are formalized with the IETF under the name XMPP by the XMPP Standards Foundation, a non-profit organization that defines open XMPP extension protocols and provides information and infrastructure to the worldwide community of Jabber/XMPP developers, service providers, and end users.

Presentations on various different use cases of Jabber technologies, IM and non-IM, will be hosted in this room.

We also have a Jabber booth.
