From 2023 on we use the open and distributed communication protocol Matrix for our chat.
All chat channels are hosted in our own homeserver:
Joining the communication on Matrix is highly recommended in order to keep up to date before and during the event, because it is the only real-time communication medium we use.
All communication in all channels on
matrix.codefreeze.fi is subject to our Code of Conduct.
1. Create a Matrix account
If you already have an account, you can skip this step.
First, you need a Matrix account. You get an account by signing up on one of the many public homeservers, for example matrix.im. Visit the homeserver and register a new account.
In order to keep the costs down we do not allow to register new accounts on the Codefreeze homeserver
matrix.codefreeze.fi, because if these accounts are used to join channels on other Matrix homeservers, incoming federation traffic will be significantly increased.
2. Join the Codefreeze space
Join the Codefreeze space using this link to find all the relevant channels.
3. Optional: Install mobile applications
You can use a browser-based client from your mobile phone (like for example FluffyChat) or install a native app, for example Element which has apps for Android and iOS and a web-based client.
Requesting additional channels
You may at any time request additional public or private channels, just reach out to one of Codefreeze Matrix homeserver admins:
