Etherpad has seen a spike in demand since Covid19 went live. It's clear we are needed so now we're trying to mobilize our efforts.
What it does
Etherpad connects people and gives them a tool to solve problems.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Maintaining such a big code base and keeping our community momentum.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Etherpad is used in pretty much every major world event that involves democracy or liberty.
What I learned
Practically everything. Without Etherpad I wouldn't have been involved in building a better Internet.
What's next for Etherpad
Modernization of certain parts of the code. Close Black Hole bugs. Release 1.9 and promote Etherpad as a clear and viable open source alternative to Google Docs, Jitsi, Zoom etc.
