<p>The Jitsi project was founded almost 20 years ago, under a different name and just for academic purposes.</p> <p>Almost 20 years later, the project could not be in a better shape! It has gone through a name change and several acquisitions by large corporations, while remaining current in the industry and innovating all along.</p> <p>This presentation will take a trip down memory lane and see where Jitsi came from, how it has managed to stick around for so long, and what the future holds.</p>

<p>LibreOffice was announced in 2010. After 10 years, it was necessary to review and update the strategy based on the evolution of the office suite market, to improve the sustainability model. Enterprises are not supporting the project as much as individual users. Over time, this can represent a threat for the sustainability of the project. We have changed our strategy to educate enterprises about the right approach to FOSS, by giving back to ensure the long term sustainability of the ...

<p>As research becomes more globalised and its output grows exponentially, especially in data, the need for open scientific research practices is more evident — the future of modern science. There is now a concerted global interest in open science uptake, but barriers exist. The formal training curriculum in most, if not all, universities in the global South do not equip students with the knowledge and tools to practice open science in their research or develop open-source tools. To work ...

<p>What is new in WebRTC, what can we expect to see in the next couple of years? I'll describe some new APIs and speculate on how they might be used. I'll introduce whipi (an opensource implementation of the new WebRTC Ingest Protocol) and use it to illustrate how the WebRTC world is changing. I'll try to predict some new usages of WebRTC - niche high value apps. Finally I'll describe how to create a decentralized web (aka web 2.5) using the datachannel and existing browser technology.</p>

<p>It has been an exciting year in the open-source database industry, with more choice, more cloud, and key changes in the industry. We will dive into the key developments over 2021, including the most important open-source database software releases in general, the significance of cloud-native solutions in a multi-vendor multi-cloud world, the new criticality of security challenges, and the evolution of the open-source software industry.</p>

<p>The broadcasting industry has for years been dominated by a specific set of technologies (RTMP, HLS, etc.) that, while effective, suffer from high latencies and so are not always a good option. The IETF has started to look into WebRTC for that, starting from ingestion using the WHIP protocol. This presentation will introduce WHIP, some existing implementations, and how this could be expanded to distribute streams to a wide audience via WebRTC as well.</p>

<p>This is the story of how we harnessed the power of the community, automation and good habits to reduce our issue burden and helped users be heard.</p> <p>5 years into its life and with vast number of users users, Element - a Matrix messaging client available on most desktop platforms, Android and iOS - had a growing backlog of bugs and enhancement requests. This is a common challenge faced by projects as they mature. I will share some of our lessons learnt and good practices that we have ...
