Behind the scenes
This year, we were again able to make EmacsConf happen entirely with
Free Software. For the live talks and/or Q&A sessions with speakers,
we used the BigBlueButton instance graciously shared with us by the
Free Software Foundation (FSF). The whole conference was captured
and streamed to the EmacsConf stream server running Icecast, using a
GStreamer pipeline based on a script written by Ruben Rodriguez for
streaming FSF events such as the LibrePlanet conference and FSF35.
For the collaborative pad for gathering questions and show notes, we
used an Etherpad on the Wikimedia Foundation instance hosted at
ikiwiki. During the conference, we used Emacs Lisp to plan the
schedule, update the topics across our IRC channels, and send automated
messages about upcoming talks to speakers and organizers, all inside
As we write more about our streaming setup, infrastructure, processes,

Thanks again to everyone for an awesome EmacsConf!
