    JSXC gets funding for group calls!

JSXC gets funding for group calls!

That sounds cool! #Jabber web browser client #JSXC gets funding by German governments #prototypefund to implement audio/video group calls within the next six months. One-to-one calls between #Conversations, #Movim and JSXC already work since some time, although not without flaws.

Note, that #Dino gets funding to implement one-to-one audio/video calls right now, compatible with Conversations and JSXC. The future for XMPP A/V calling looks bright!

ZeroSpam

We will talk about Spam in the context of XMPP.

Holger (i.a. ejabberd developer and admin of the XMPP provider conversations.im and the instance of Freie Universität Berlin) and Ge0rG (i.a. author of the spam manifesto https://github.com/JabberSPAM/jabber-spam-fighting-manifesto, heavy user of the Prosody module mod_firewall and developer of the XMPP client yaxim) will give talks. MattJ (i.a. author of mod_firewall and Snikket) will join the meetup.

Afterwards, we will discuss the three types of spam: registration spam, presence subscription spam and spam messages (directly or via public group chats).

When? Wednesday, 2021-03-10 18:00 CET (always 2ⁿᵈ Wednesday of every month)

Where? Online, via our channel (xmpp:berlin-meetup@conference.conversations.im?join). A Jitsi Meet video conference will be announced there some minutes before the meeting starts.

See you then!

    How to choose you Jabber service?

    debacle · Sunday, 24 January, 2021 - 01:38 edit · 1 minute

Aren't we all envious of users of #Whatsapp, #Signal, #Telegram or #Threema? The choice of service is easy for them. There is none! Happy users!

Instead we use #Jabber or #XMPP, because we love self-hosting, don't we? Well, it is important to have the option to self-host, but in most cases it is not the best option to actually do it. So we need to select a server, based on our priorities.

I suggest to look out for:

  1. More than one admin? A single admin might be in holidays, when you need them most. Or they outburns and closes the service on short notice. Beware of the lorry factor. Choose a service run by a club, cooperative or company!
  2. Sound financial base? If you pay for the service, you have a higher chance, that the service is here to stay. A service based on donations might work as good as a commercial one.
  3. Good uptime history?Here is some limited informtion about it. Also, the longer a service exists, the longer it will survive, because of the Lindy effect.
  4. Good #LTS grade? Use only A grade servers from the IM Observatory.
  5. Acceptable data privacy statement? IANAL, but you know, #GDPR and so on...
  6. High XMPP compliance? This XMPP Compliance Tester lists many servers.
  7. Cool domain name? and other details like how much server space you have for sharing cat content, how long messages are archived, whether an .onion domain is available, or transports (gateways) to #IRC or other networks are provided.

Useful lists of servers can also be found on Freie Messenger and JabberEs.
