    The German Government funds The Prototype Fund which funds software development of innovative public interest technologies under an open source license

    Danie van der Merwe · news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Friday, 17 September - 12:05

The Prototype Fund supports ideas in civic tech, data literacy, data security and software infrastructure. We want to provide software developers, hackers, and creatives with the opportunity to code and develop innovative public interest technologies. The results must be made publicly available under an open source license.

As individual developers or small interdisciplinary project teams, you will receive up to €47,500 over six months from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. With this funding, you can write code and develop a first prototype of your software. In addition, we will connect you with tech and other relevant communities, support you with coaching, and advise you on project implementation and communication.

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!
