At the Matrix Community Summit 2023 that took place in September 2023, I gave a rather technical talk about our learnings regarding Migrating the WordPress Community from Slack to Matrix.
The WP Tavern has been following our efforts and posted several times about it:
- WordPress Project to Evaluate Replacing Slack with Matrix Open Source Chat
- WordPress Contributors Continue Exploring Migration of Public and Private Messages from Slack to Matrix
- WordPress Launches Slack/Matrix Bridge
I’ve embedded my presentation below. You can find the recording on Youtube with my talk starting at around 3h35m.
I hope we can soon announce to finalize the migration to Matrix, there is not a lot missing.
