gnusocialcamp

GNU social Camp will focus on digital literacy, the consolidation of the network of GNU social nodes and their users, and the development of new functionalities and integration of GNU social with other platforms.


The 7th and 8th of October, we will be holding the first GNU social Camp. The main objective is to promote the development of GNU social, the main social platform project supported by the Free Software Foundation, and consolidate the growth of the federated and distributed social web. We already have a first draft of the program with excellent news, like the participation of Mikael Nordfeldth, the main developer of GNU social, and Pablo Bernardo to talk to us about mobility in relation to GNU social.

We still have time to include chats and workshops in the event, and we would love receive your proposals. So that you have the framework of the event, we’ll give you some of the keys and main topics of the GNU social Camp.

  • Digital literacy: Why promote platforms to create distributed networks? What is the federated social web? Network topologies. The objective is to promote and spread the theoretical framework of the web of autonomy.
  • Consolidation of the network: Installation and maintenance of GNU social nodes, manuals and tutorials for new users, frequently asked questions, error correction. Ultimately, any initiative that contributes to consolidating and energizing the current network of working GNU social nodes.
  • New functionalities and GNU social for the sharing city: Plug-in development, OStatus, topics, integration with blogs. The objective of this topic is to lay the foundation and offer the tools to turn GNU social into the free standard of the Sharing Economy and distributed social networks.

GNU social Camp will focus on digital literacy, the consolidation of the network of GNU social nodes and their users, and the development of new functionalities and integration of GNU social with other platforms.
