From KDE Community Wiki

Over the last year, KDE has been running BigBlueButton on meet.kde.org. Where initially, meet.kde.org was built to support Akademy 2020, it has become a very valuable community resource enabling remote meetings and events over the last 12 months.

Sprint Duration

Sprint Activities

The main goals of this sprint:

  • Reflect on what has worked and what can be improved.
  • Determine if there are any key traits that we should add to meet.kde.org to turn it into a better, permanent community resource.
  • Perform some discovery on other events using similar technologies and determine if their implementations could give us some inspiration.
  • Look forward to Akademy 2021 and design our "conference experience," outlining any new technology that we might need to put together.
  • Where possible, build prototypes for any new technology that we would like to build, proving (or disproving) the concept.
