Snikket is a project to make XMPP/Jabber decentralised instant messaging much easier to use. You can follow at:
The website is at https://snikket.org
Snikket is releasing Android and iOS apps, and server hosting software, all with a consistent look, feel and branding.
The aim is to make XMPP easy enough for ordinary users, the same way Mastodon did with ActivityPub.

Dear Fediverse, say I wanted to change my career path. I'm an academic teacher but as you probably know I dabble in Linux system administration (mostly Debian/Ubuntu). I'm sure I still have a lot to learn (e.g. automations, CI, backups) but I can already do quite a lot. I've been using Linux exclusively for the last 10+ years. I have experience with running several websites. I even played with Photoshop/GIMP (a long time ago). In other words: I'm the IT guy in my family (and beyond).
Would you recommend any places where I can look for a suitable job? Any general tips? I'm looking for either something remote or in the Lublin area (PL). Btw, I like my current place so I'd rather not relocate. Boosts welcome 🔁
