There’s been some great contributions in this conference, worth listening to when the recordings appear. Overall, great sense of active global federation. And not all of it technically over my head :roll_eyes:

Today, on Live translation for example (actually simultaneous interpretation) @mnoyes @jamie @camille - I arrived late, but I think this will be very worth sitting down to listen to again. There’s a bunch of code called fairblue, developed by fairkom - who really seem to be on top of this game: Roland Alton at fairkom | fairkom

Around 27min into the session, discussion of plugins/APIs in BBB.

Around 34min in, some nice integration with NextCloud, patching straight through from a link in a pdf to a BBB room for presentation.

A way of using NextCloud integration to do the job of Eventbrite :+1:

@freescholar Integrations with Drupal

Finally, closing out with a presentation from Mconf in Brazil. Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre. Long-term committer in BBB, Great sense of collaboration, and ingenuity, and a lively regional community in Brazil. Interested in mobile clients? And SIP integration

@wouter @osb It could be especially interesting for to talk to Mconf about the community aspect, which they run alongside their commercial services for major academic institutions and suchlike:

The web portal at was created as an effort to promote Mconf and bring web conferencing to people that need it but may not be able to afford it. It is also a way of promoting Mconf and letting people test it. There are no restrictions on who can use anyone can create an account use it as much as they want to.
However, there are no contracts associated with the usage of, so there are no terms of support or any guarantee of quality implied in the usage of the service. It can be considered a “best-effort” service/support: we will hear you and try to help you as much as we can, but we can’t guarantee if your requests will be attended nor how long it will take.

Anybody speak Brazilian Portugese? Actually Felipe Cecagno has terrific English.
