Planning

The organizers and other volunteers hang out in the #emacsconf IRC channel on irc.freenode.net. If you would like to get involved and help us out with the planning, come by the IRC channel and say hi!

We will be collecting various ideas and plans for organizing the conference and adding excerpts from #emacsconf logs to this page.

Infrastructure

We need to decide on a good way to host the conference. An important priority here is to use as much Free Software for this as possible, ideally 100%.

At the moment, it seems Jitsi Meet is our best bet. Let’s see if we can self-host it and if it’s usable with limited resources. If not, we might have to use the flagship version hosted at https://meet.jit.si.

Bandwidth-wise, it seems that Jitsi’s videobridge may not be a bottleneck [1]. It seems using Jitsi could be feasible.

At some point, we should probably contact the admins of meet.jit.si and verify that it is okay to run a conference on their site. We should also obviously try it out thoroughly well in advance of the conference.
