Let's Start the SD Open Source "How to" List

Let's build up some questions, answers, comments, and concerns for the markdown-based SD Open Source website.

The repository for the future San Diego Open Source website is here: https://github.com/SanDiegoOpenSource/sandiegoopensource.github.com


1. Make sure the Github repository has clear instructions for contributors so anyone can contribute

2. Choose a basic design/template for the site (Jekyll?, H5BP?, Zurb/Bootstrap/etc.?)

3. Create some content to go on the website

    I put up a website containing some pages based on our last two discussions: http://sandiegoopensource.org/. The pages are currently completely unstyled (no CSS yet) and there are many "TODO" notes without content yet.

    Pull requests welcome: https://github.com/SanDiegoOpenSource/sandiegoopensource.github.com

    This time I thought the move to O'Briens was better organized. The amount of information exchanged was excellent. No need to make it more formal, in my opinion, unless someone WANTS to present to the group.

    I have teacher training tonight! :( Any chance there'll be some meetups that aren't on Wednesdays?

      We don't have a set date for the meetups yet. I just happened to make both on Wednesdays. Would Thursday work better for next month?

      Thursday would be out for me (choir practice).

    I plan on working on the site on my laptop while we talk tonight tonight. Feel free to bring your laptop if you'd also like to hack on the site during the meetup.

    Awesome idea! Just can't make it tomorrow due to prior plans.
    And Pangea is great -- try the hot dog in pastry -- it rocks!

    Kalen, I just updated the meetup description to note what we'll be doing.

    Repository website is here:https://github.com/SanDiegoOpenSource/sandiegoopensource.github.com. I registered sandiegoopensource.org (we can get something shorter if we can agree on another name) and it points to the (currently broken) repository.

    I will be creating a series of pull requests before the meetup adding markdown files that will eventually be rendered as HTML. Pull requests and comments are welcome.

    I can offer the lessons of writing the Graphics Slave in Linux and Windows - while they are still fresh in my mind.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
