Yammer Launches Strophe Powered Microblogging For Businesses
September 9, 2008
Techcrunch50 is underway, and one of the early darlings is Yammer. Yammer is Twitter for businesses, allowing companies to have microblogging silos where their employees can communicate and keep track of each other. Unlike Twitter and Identi.ca, Yammer has XMPP built right into the Web application, and it is powered by Strophe.
I met Adam Pisoni, one of the Yammer developers, at the recent XMPP Summit in Portland. He approached me after a short talk on Strophe and Chesspark asking about a few issues he had run into with the library. We figured out the issues, used his feedback to improve the API, and now we can see the results of his labors with Yammer.
Congratulations to Adam and the rest of the Yammer team on their launch!
