What we're about

Welcome! This is a meetup for people who like to live open source.
We focus on creating opportunities for people to get together and be productive, whether that means working on your own projects, working on open source projects you contribute to, or learning new things.

And it doesn't have to be code! The open source philosophy transcends the specific tools you use to bring your project to life. Building open source software is, of course, open source, but so is writing for public knowledge, creating CreativeCommons images, and many other things! You can do any of that here with us.

Generally, we try to meet at least once a month on a weekend to work on projects together and chat. We also maintain a Google Drive space for people to use to share with the group (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0ByW... (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0ByWtXkhNf140aFJOUUhvR3R2cmM) -- please request write access if you'd like to contribute) which includes a "Meetup Ideas" document.

We meet electronically on Keybase @OpenSourceChi and our Twitter handle is @ChiOpenSource (https://twitter.com/ChiOpenSource)

Hope to see you at our meetups!

NOTE: The official Twitter handle for this group is @ChiOpenSource (https://twitter.com/ChiOpenSource), NOT @ChicagoOpen, which appears to have been hacked and is putting out considerable amounts of offensive content. We do not control that account and are in no way associated with it.

Upcoming events (5)

Jam session

Online event

Come together to hang out and work on projects. If you have a project, bring it, hack on it, and tell people about it! If you don't feel like working on the weekend, you can come meet people and chat it up. (Please note, however, that many people come to these to get work done on their projects, so be respectful of those who are trying to work.) We are VIRTUAL until further notice. We will post a Mozilla Hubs room as the meetup nears.
