Presentations

Patrick Poirier, Jean-Philippe Beaudet and Shawn Lauzon: "Implementing Matrix"

Matrix defines a set of open APIs for decentralised communication, suitable for securely publishing, persisting and subscribing to data over a global open federation of servers with no single point of control.

A proof that bigger is not always better and that small things can land you on the front page of the university student's journal if you're not careful enough...
