Use your LDAP uid/password on the milkypond.org domain to connect and your account will be created automagically the first time.
Do not enable Integrations: these are remote apps you can integrate into the Element web and Android applications but they are not opensource and we don't know if they are secure and respect privacy
Using an Application
There are multiple clients on various platforms, you can pick one in this list:

The is a DuckCorp space containing the following channels: (like on IRC)

- #DuckCorp: contact with DuckCorp Administrators and technical discussions
(experimental) Bridge with IRC
We experimented with a bridge to join communication between the #MilkyPond and #DuckCorp IRC channels and their Matrix counterpart but that did not work well because of several limitations and the fact end-to-end encryption was enabled on Matrix thus preventing the discussions to flow towards IRC which does not support such encryption. At the moment the bridge is only configured to bridge the #taiste channel for further experiments.
The goal was to prevent splitting the community but maybe that's not such a good idea. Ideas welcome.
