🎉 Today marks 1 year of the etke.cc! 🎉

During that year, we did:

  • Pushed 234 updates and enhancements to the automation framework used as the service core
  • Integrated 17 additional components to the matrix stack
  • Developed 5 bots and tools to extend matrix capabilities
  • Installed 92 new matrix servers
  • Helped 172 people and organizations to achieve their goals in the matrix
  • Posted 74 updates in the announcements room

Some history:

  • the project (not service yet) started on February 12, 2021
  • the first installed server was etke.cc itself (yes, etke.cc homeserver is a customer of etke.cc service from the day 1)
  • the second installed server was a chatbot, that uses matrix as a platform to interact with users across different chat networks (Telegram, WhatsApp, Signal, etc.) - one API to rule them all.
  • In May 2021 the service was published globally

FOSDEM'22 will start on February 5 (tomorrow).

FOSDEM is a free event for software developers to meet, share ideas and collaborate.

Every year, thousands of developers of free and open source software from all over the world gather at the event in Brussels.

Check the schedule on fosdem.org and join the #fosdem2022:fosdem.org space.

Space structure may be a bit confusing, but keep in mind that each talk will have own matrix room.

For example, matrix stand is #matrix-stand:fosdem.org and dev room is #matrix-devroom:fosdem.org

service updates

  • Added news section: etke.cc/news - an automated copy of messages in that room, generated by emm
  • Subscribers now should use etke.cc/add if they want to add or change something on homeserver. PMs to a developer is no longer an option

  • By customers’ requests: we start accepting PayPal payment on ko-fi.com/etkecc for customers who prefer to pay with PayPal and/or can’t pay with a credit card directly. Consider that as an additional payment method, it doesn’t affect existing customers.
