Welcome to the latest edition of your pseudo-monthly JMP update!
In case it’s been a while since you checked out JMP, here’s a refresher: JMP lets you send and receive text and picture messages (and calls) through a real phone number right from your computer, tablet, phone, or anything else that has an XMPP client. JMP’s tagline, “Freedom For Your Phone Number”, captures the freedom that JMP gives you from traditional cell phone carriers, as well as the fully-free nature of all the software that powers JMP (licensed entirely under AGPLv3+).
If you’re in or around Brussels next weekend (February 2-3), we highly recommend checking out FOSDEM, one of the biggest free/libre software conferences out there, and entirely community-run (see https://fosdem.org/2019/practical/ for details - no registration is required, just show up!). A few people from JMP will be there, including our founder (who will also be at https://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Summit_23 , which you can join as well) - we’ll be wearing T-shirts with a large JMP logo on the back. While we won’t have a booth at FOSDEM this year, we’re very happy to talk about JMP if you happen to run into us; don’t be afraid to say hi!
We had a great time at SeaGL in Seattle this past November - thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth! It was wonderful to chat and learn more about what people like in JMP and how they’re using it. Stay tuned for more on which conferences we’ll be exhibiting at in the near future!
If you’d like to know what’s happening with JMP between emails like this, here are some ways you can find out:
- follow us on Twitter
- find us in xmpp:firstname.lastname@example.org?join - a group chat accessible from most XMPP clients, and on the web
- signup for the 30-day free trial at https://jmp.chat/#signup and try it out!
Thanks for reading and have a great day! We’re looking forward to seeing some of you at FOSDEM!
