Matrix is an open source project that defines an open protocol for secure decentralised communication. Today’s public Matrix network has over 28M users spread over 60K deployments, including the entirety of the French State, German military, Mozilla, Wikimedia Foundation and many others. Matrix’s roots can be traced back to a Part IB CompSci project, but it’s come a long way since then! In this talk we’ll explain our work on Matrix over the last year, including moving from a federated client-server model into a hybrid peer-to-peer network, featuring our own Pinecone P2P overlay network and adding Bluetooth Low Energy support on iOS & Android. We’ll also explain how we ran FOSDEM , the world’s largest open source conference (35K attendees), entirely online via Matrix a few weeks ago.
