Joining the fediverse, #introductions are in order:
RIOT powers the Internet of Things like Linux powers the Internet. RIOT is a free, open source operating system developed by a grassroots community gathering companies, academia, and hobbyists, distributed all around the world.
Through this account, we participate in the fediverse by announcing events and releases, boosting RIOT related content and general networking.
On the technical side, being a group project, we use tootgroup (https://github.com/oe4dns/tootgroup.py) to allow project maintainers on the fediverse (whom this account follows) to add content and be notified on at-mentions. In parallel, we use Stork (https://robertoszek.github.io/pleroma-bot/) to carefully replicate announcements created on the birdsite over here.
@RIOT_OS welcome to fedi and great to have you here :)
I will add tootgroup.py to the #activitypub developer resources watchlist..
@RIOT_OS this actually fits a number of roles where the modern Linux kernel is just too fat, especially since it can run on a lower clock speed fpga programmed for risc-v and things like that.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
