2019-10-13, 10:00–12:00, S2 Bionic Room

If you'd like to start hosting your own Matrix Synapse homeserver on your Ubuntu server, join this workshop and we'll talk you through it

Matrix is an open standard for interoperable, decentralised, real-time communication over the Internet. It can be used to power Instant Messaging, VoIP/WebRTC signaling, Internet of Things communication - or anywhere you need a standard HTTP API for publishing and subscribing to data whilst tracking the conversation history.

By self-hosting Matrix you begin to take control of your own data and your own communications. In this workshop we'll walk through installation on a fresh Ubuntu server and configuration of the various components you'll need.

Ubuntu VPSs will be provided during the workshop, if you want to follow along you only need to bring a laptop with a SSH client on it!
