An organization I am part of is hosting our bi-annual convention in less than 2 weeks.
Due to teh Pandemic we ahve to do it online rather than in person like normally.
We had planned to use Zoom for this, but during our trial runs we learned their platform has a hard limit of 1000. We need to seat 1040 delegates at least though.
I had been promting Jitsi as an alternative for smalelr groups to use through the free meet.jit.si so as not to have use the Zoom licesne and have simultaneous meetings. But if the propitary unit isn’t going to work for the full convention we need a new solution FAST.
Clearly installing our own instance on our own server is doable, but in such a short time frame working through techncially issues on such, not to mention the actual managment of the meeting on the day of, is way too much of a hill to cimb for our very small set of employees (who arelady whould have been full doign stuff they know how at the in person convention) and volunteers.
What woudl be a good way to look at hiring folks who are intimently familar with Jitsi to do such a large project, in such a short time?
