SIMPLE-XMPP Developer Workshop 2008

SIP/SIMPLE and XMPP share a lot of concepts but they are different in many aspects. Being nowadays the leading open protocols for voice, video, instant messaging and presence, the interconnection between them creates an unified communication environment for users in both sides. The workshop aims to bring together people with large expertise in both protocols, interested in development, testing and deployment of SIP/SIMPLE-XMPP solutions. With a permanent focus on innovation, the participants cover open source projects to private enterprises. You can join the event for free.
