Hey there. I’m Tim from IndieHosters, I had a quick call with @osb last week. I don’t know what is the onboarding process but I guess its nice to introduce ourselves first :).
Some of you may know us through LibreHosters, we have been hosting free and open source softwares for 5-6 years now (mostly for french people). You can check our website and our social code https://indiehosters.net/code-social/ (its in french though…). For a while we have been 2 sysadmins running the project and now we are about 6 people collaborating on IndieHosters with a focus on user support.
We would be glad to join meet.coop collective and collaborate to setup a great hosting service for visio conferences. From what I’m reading we share a lot of values, that should be a smooth collaboration
Obviously there is a great demand for visio conferences and as we all know it can be quite challenging :). On our side we have been working with jitsi and bigbluebutton, we are hosting both at the moment.
Lately we redesigned our offer and we are now focusing on a service that we called Liiibre and that is a combination of different collaborative tools (nextcloud, rocketchat, onlyoffice/collabora, jitsi and keycloak for SSO). We are actually focusing on jitsi for that service and target small group meetings.
For bigger meetings or events we experimented with bigbluebutton. We are currently hosting one bigbluebutton instance used by an organisation with events of 40-80 participants and one for our own testing. This has been a bit challenging at first but a good learning process, we are quite confident now :).
Actually we are betting on jitsi in the long run but still think that as it is for now, bigbluebutton is a great software for events, workshops, conferences… So we are trying to take the best of both, but thats quite some work. Collaborating with others on bigbluebutton would be a great relief and we hope that the work we will do in parrallel on jitsi would also benefit the community.
I guess that is all for now :). Let us know what should be the onboarding process ;).
PS: We have demands right now, one being for a university (up to 3000 students). We would like to be able to do it with you, not alone :).
