Challenges running Jitsi Meet at scale during the pandemic

A tale with what failed, what didn't, what we learned and what we are doing next.

When the pandemic (first) hit, many turned towards online solutions for having their business meetings, or gatherings of any kind really. Jitsi Meet being an Open Source and privacy respecting service saw a huge surge in usage (through the free service) which we hadn't anticipated.

In this presentation we'll share our lessons learned keeping up with the huge load, what improvements were made since and where the project is heading in 2021.
