Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

Trying out a new logo design, let us know what you think!

Many thanks to @CoralineAda and @stumpsyn we now have a Code of Conduct for both the GetTogether software project, and an Events CoC for the gettogether.community instance.

One year ago today, the first commit of GetTogether was made. Over the past year we've grown to serve 150+ teams and 400+ events!

I'm not generally a fan of giant patches, but we landed a 2,100 line PR that makes it fully translatable! You can help make it available in your language here:

GetTogether is now setup on Travis and all tests are passing. That's a merry christmas present indeed!

Just discovering @GetTogetherComm , a very nice open source event manager for local communities!

gettogether.community

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: github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get

We've hosted over 300 events since going live at the start of this year! Come and join us for your next

BAMF (Bay Area Members of the Fediverse) now has a dedicated team page on #GetTogether: gettogether.community/bamf-bay

It looks like GetTogether is working towards implementing ActivityPub, which could make it a great meetup app for the fediverse.

#BayArea #SanFrancisco #Oakland

This week some community members will be meeting up in Brussels, to share experiences, and get to know each other.

If you would like to join them please check out this link:

Hey world! I just supported Fosstodon on @Patreon. Help your instance with hosting costs by becoming a patron too. 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?
