Who is behind NetJSON?¶
Table of Contents:
NetJSON is a bottom up initiative which is the product of discussion happened on the interop-dev mailing list between 2012 and 2015.
The idea came after years of attempts at creating interoperable software for community networks. After several failed attempts, some contributors understood that the missing piece of the puzzle was a common format that allowed different networking tools to interoperate easily.
Below you can find a list of people who gave a significant contribution to NetJSON.
He wrote most of the specification while writing implementations for his software projects and collecting feedback from the interop-dev mailing list.
L. Aaron Kaplan¶
He co-founded the interop-dev group to work on networking software interoperability issues and contributed to get the work on the NetJSON RFC started. He also helped to get funding from the CONFINE EU project.
He currently maintains the OLSRd2 routing deamon and helds the position of researcher at Fraunhofer FKIE.
The initial work on the NetJSON RFC was supported financially with a grant from the CONFINE EU project.
2016 - current¶
Currently the work on the NetJSON specification is being done by volunteers who care about achieving its goals.
We are interested in financial contributions like donations, grants and open source funding programs; this would help to speed up important tasks like writing more NetJSON implementations and refining the specification.
