Communication is an important aspect of any community, getting people together to discuss ideas, issues, and make progress is vital to building a network of people interested in Ubuntu. Here are some of the platforms that the Ubuntu community uses to keep in touch.
We are still in the initial testing phases for Matrix. Please be aware that the Matrix instance is still in heavy development. If you’d like to collaborate at a more stable location, please use IRC.
Matrix is a modern, secure and open source communications protocol that boasts a number of powerful features like federation, bridging and integrations. Users of Matrix can choose from a number of clients to connect to rooms and spaces across a globally federated network.
IRC, also known as Internet Relay Chat, allows real-time text messaging and is arranged in a series of rooms or channels. Each channel has a particular topic where members can communicate with one another in an open setting. If you have a question or need assistance, the Ubuntu Community has a number of IRC channels you can join.
Visit the IRC Channel List for a catalog of the Ubuntu Community channels.
