Published on: Sunday, 25 March 2018

Speaker: Daniel Gultsch, Head of Development Conversations
Info: https://2018.fossasia.org/event/speakers.html#daniel-gultsch3163

This talk will look back at four years of development of a popular (in its niche :-) ) Jabber/XMPP client for Android and explain why we need open, standardized protocols for secure and private communication but also explain the challenges that go along with it. The talk will hit the following topics.

* Why is federated (provider independent) instant messaging important?

* Can Jabber/XMPP be a solution? Is fragmentation a problem and if so how can we solve it?

* What challenges did we have to overcome in the past (Push Notifications, Battery consumption, E2E encryption)

* What challenges are left?
