What does the AG DSN actually do? Below a few highlights from the past month April.

On April 7th, a few active members met at the NOC, our large office, for Tux sewing. Fabrics were bought the day before. The goal was to manufacture two penguins, a blue and a orange one.

Orange, that's the color of the student network „Selfnet“. On April 13th, it celebrated it's 25th anniversary, five active members of the AG DSN took part. During the event, the orange Tux found a new home.

Last but not least, a bit more technical topic: for internal communication, the AG DSN runs a Mattermost as well as a XMPP server, Prosŏdy. Starting from April 16th, a Coturn joined the Prosŏdy to provide STUN as well as TURN functionality. With these services in place, active members can now initiate audio and video calls via XMPP.

Not mentioned in this post are the numerous unspectecular tasks, being accomplished everyday: answering email tickets, providing support in person, bank imports and many more.
