The speaker description is potentially outdated as it is from a previous FOSDEM edition.

Matthew Hodgson is technical co-founder of an early-stage not-for-profit organisation focused on solving the problem of fragmentation in current VoIP and IP Messaging applications. By defining a new lightweight pragmatic open standard for federation and interoperability and releasing opensource reference implementations, Matrix hopes to create a new ecosystem that makes real-time-communication as universal and interoperable as email. Matthew juggles with running the Unified Communications line of business within Amdocs (formerly MX Telecom), where he's been building IP telephony solutions for 11 years. He has a BA in Computer Science and Physics from the University of Cambridge.
