#introductions My first toot!
I'm a C++ developer, currently studying & working in the area of computational physics and gpgpu programming. Been a user for many years, but finally this year decided to give a go. Also very excited for PinePhone later this year!
Now let's figure out this thing (you can see I already found the emoticons...).
The first iteration of the #retribute app is now officially ready 🎉
It's a web application that connect to your Mastodon account(s) and suggest you creators to tip based on your activity.
If you enjoy the concept or have some feedback, please let me know!
You can also find more about the app and how it works on the about page: https://app.retribute.me/about
Hi all, what would you use for an online form? I'm going to send out a request for English language editors.
I can code something myself, but if there is something out there that is #FOSS and privacy conscious I'd like to use that group.
This would essentially be a Google forms or survey alternative.
I am using Mastodon and Fosstodon since a few weeks. I used to rely on a proprietary platform and so far I really enjoy Fosstodon (thanks for it).
I am working on the Elisa music player as part of the KDE project.
I am using FOSS and KDE and Debian since 2004 and a PowerPC laptop.
El Árbol del Tule is a tree growing in Oaxaca state, Mexico, and it has the stoutest trunk of any tree in the world. Its a 35 metre tall Montezuma cypress, and its main trunk has a circumference of over 42 metres, even larger than any known giant sequoia.
It also goes by the Nahuatl name of Ahuehuete, meaning "Old man of the water". According to the local Zapotec people, it was planted 1400 years ago by a priest of Ehecatl, the Aztec wind god, named Pecocha.
New to mastodon... just learned about it and it seems like an amazing project.
It'll probably take me a while to get used to the platform 😅
I'm self-educated in tech (networking, programming, security) and have been looking to contribute to some OSS projects for a while. Hoping to contribute to the cause, and to maybe switch from my current career as a digital artist into development full-time
The Openwords markup language represents human language learning problems
Openwords webapp reads those problems.
Openwords is looking for a partnering university to collaboratively build lessons. We are currently being tested in Jiangsu province, China at a k12.
Let me introduce two groups.
First, OceanEditors.com (OE).
OE isn't software, but Fosstodon may still find it interesting.
OE is an English #language editing service for scholars. We're able to serve Chinese scholars (WeChat pay).
Our main challenge is finding clients. Any help in that regard would be appreciated.
OE does not pursue profit maximization for shareholders. Instead we provide better compensation for our editors. We aim to exit as a #workercoop.
Hello I decided to place my personal Mastodon account at Fosstodon,
I'm excited to join the community here to learn more about #FOSS projects.
I'm the founder of @Openwords
I also run an English language editing group for nonnative English speakers.
I'm located on #HongKong island 🇭🇰 & 🇺🇸
Feel free to say hello!

Founder of Oceaneditors, Openwords.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
