In this workshop we will be setting up our very own minimal matrix bot using the brand-new rust-sdk. This is a type-along workshop, so please make sure you have the setup ready for it when we start.
This technical talk will present to you the Matrix Rust SDK, the upcoming new core of all Element Products. We will cover the goal of the project, the current state and its future.
We'd like to present to you Effektio - your pocket organizer - a mobile-first community organizing app, we have been developing the last couple of month. In particular we'd like to take a peak under the hood and understand how the project uses matrix internally to implement an entire organizing app ontop of the matrix protocol.
With Call, ThirdRoom and Effektio, where is matrix heading? Let's take a peak into the lower layers and from there image what else will be possible in the future of matrix. Will it become the next generation of "the web"?
