P10K: getting 10000 participants into a Jitsi meeting

How we leveraged XMPP and the tricks we are using to get to 10000 participants

About a year ago we added support for 500 participants in Jitsi Meet. Today I'll show you how we are taking that to the next level: 10000 yes, that is 10 thousand participants!

Reaching 500 participants was a huge ordeal because it stressed every component in our architecture, from the User Interface all the way to our XMPP server and everything in between. In order to reach 10000 participants thinking outside of the box was necessary. Thanks to some clever tricks like using the visitor role and multiple XMPP MUCs we were able to get there.

This presentation will get into the gory details of what it took to get there!
