Why Mattermost?

A new wave of collaboration tools are taking hold in workplaces, particularly ones that value fast and frictionless communication and spontaneous collaboration.

The most popular of these is Slack. It works because it is focused, fast, and works well across devices.

The Universidad de Guadalajara Agora project organizers have used Slack to organize.

However, due to BC privacy legislation, using US-hosted services like Slack for coursework raises concerns. There are open source alternatives, one of which is Mattermost, hosted here.

How Mattermost?

First, make sure your account is active. You should have received an email. If you do not have an invite, check your junk folder... then contact Brian.


Once you are in... browse and join channels.

Configure your account, set your notifications.

Managing and creating channels: open and private.

Search is key!

Mattermost works well on mobile devices, and has Android, iOS, and Desktop applications.
