It's Black Friday! Sign up today and get FREE event hosting! Or tomorrow. Or any day, really.
That's because your free hosting is covered by our generous patrons who keep this service online and available to everyone. Thanks to everyone who continues!
The intent was always to support federation, and there is some very basic event federation already using simple JSON feeds.
Fully ActivityPub support (needed to interoperate with Mastodon) is more complicated, and while the data export is working, we need contributors to help with the pub/sub part of the protocol.
There's an open issue for it here: https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60
Tomorrow I'll be at Logan House Coffee Company for

BAMF (Bay Area Members of the Fediverse) now has a dedicated team page on #GetTogether: https://gettogether.community/bamf-bay-area-members-of-the-fediverse/
It looks like GetTogether is working towards implementing ActivityPub, which could make it a great meetup app for the fediverse.

Hey world! I just supported Fosstodon on @Patreon. Help your instance with hosting costs by becoming a patron too. https://t.co/lYfLVoTqUx
Our admin, @mike had a great idea - to open up the Fosstodon Hub to our users, so they can contribute blog posts.
Maybe you want to talk about a project you're interested in, or something you're working on, or maybe just tell people why you use FOSS in a more long-form fashion.
Think of it kinda like a mini-medium for Fosstodon users.
This post is to gauge interest before we start developing something. Would anyone be interested in contributing to, or consuming, such content?
We're organizing a @gnome 3.30 release party in #Brno next week. Find out more and sign up at @GetTogetherComm: https://gettogether.community/events/163/gnome-330-release-party-in-brno/
We've dropped the idea of "premium" teams. From now on all teams will have access to all features, free of cost!
If you want to help with the cost of hosting, become a patron: https://www.patreon.com/mhall119
We hate spam as much as you do, that's why GetTogether only sends you relevant messages. To date we average fewer than 1.5 messages per person, over the past 6 months!
I just became a monthly patron of @fosstodon
If you like Mastodon and want to see it succeed and replace Twitter, you need to support your instance too.
By helping pay for the hosting and maintenance of your instance you will not only make sure it can keep running, but you also give the admins a reason to ensure that it's run and moderated to your liking.
If you're an instance admin, let people know how to support you.
This is our 100th event!
Let's Get Together at http://GetTogether.Community
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
