The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is the network protocol that has powered Jabber technologies since 1999. Originally focused on instant messaging, XMPP is now used for many diverse applications, including social networking, Voice over IP (VoIP), and machine-to-machine communication. This interactive tutorial provides a practical, fast-paced introduction to XMPP, thus enabling you to build innovative, real-time applications. Topics covered include XMPP architectures, authentication and encryption, communication primitives, service discovery, publish-subscribe, multi-user interaction, and ways you can extend XMPP for custom functionality. Presented by authors of O’Reilly’s “XMPP: The Definitive Guide”, this session includes many practical guidelines and “gotchas” that will help you get off to a fast start with XMPP-based software projects.
Peter Saint-Andre has been contributing to the Jabber/XMPP developer community since late 1999, where he has focused on technology standardization as author of the XMPP RFCs and numerous XMPP extension protocols. Since 2002 he has also served as Executive Director of the XMPP Standards Foundation. Peter is co-author of “XMPP: The Definitive Guide” (O’Reilly, 2009).
