This year we have wanted to allow users to interact with the conference via Matrix. Rooms are mirrored between both services, so don't worry about missing out on anything. If you've never used Matrix before, you can learn more about the federated messaging system here. You can register for an account on matrix.carolinacon.org. If you already use matrix 😎, you can join the space (like a discord server or guild), or just hang out in #general.

We host a client at element.carolinacon.org, but you can connect with any Matrix client. Element is available for Linux/Windows/Mac and iOS/Android. Fluffychat is another great mobile client.

Code of conduct

TLDR: be nice :) Hacking anything other than approved CTF servers is illegal and will result in a ban from the Matrix/Discord server and CarolinaCon as a whole.

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.
