NLUUG and XTech Conferences
This week is going to be a busy one. I will be speaking at two conferences, naturally about Jabber.
about one of these conferences before. On Thursday 26 May, the Dutch
Unix User Group (NLUUG), will
hold its spring conference in Ede, The Netherlands. The topic is
Beyond, and my talk is an introduction into Jabber
and how it might be used to replace current E-mail standards, while
solving a number of problems currently found in the E-mail landscape.
I will also touch the Beyond aspect of
The other conference is XTech 2005, a
three-day event held in Amsterdam. Coincidently, the tagline of this
XML, the Web and Beyond. Lot's of
Beyond going on these days. This conference takes
place on Wednesday 25 through Friday 27 May, which overlaps the NLUUG
conference. This is a pity, but fortunately, my presentation will be on
Friday. I will be filling
in for Peter Saint-Andre,
who was unable to attend. Our paper, for which he deserves most credit,
can be found here.
The range of topics of both conferences really matches quite nicely
with my interests. So, I'm really excited to get to meet a lot of smart
people. I've booked some 1-star hotel and will be traveling quite a bit
this week. I also need to be in Amsterdam for my work on Tuesday, and
will most likely stop by the co-location facility to monitor the
upgrade of our machine
mag.ik.nu that evening,
hopefully to be concluded by a informal get-together
before XTech takes off.
