What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in open source software and hardware. We aim to encourage self-hosting of services to contribute to a better, more decentralised Internet.

We plan to run regular meetups to discuss all aspects of open source from modern federated services and approaches to open standards for communication.

We also aim to run regular informal sessions to teach basic server administration, command line usage, hosting basic services web servers as well as Mastodon or PeerTube and showcase some of the latest developments in open source.

Upcoming events (1)

After work drinks in the pub (Bon Accord) [1st Fridays of the month]

Just an excuse for a wee Friday night catch up over a beer or two.

All welcome, from complete beginners to the more experienced users.

Come learn about what projects we've been working on or new technology we've been experimenting with.

We'll be doing this regularly on the first Friday of the month. We'll be there late, so even if you can't make it for 6pm, just drop in.

Remember, we have a Matrix chat room where you can get to know us before the meetings (and get help with any projects etc) - the room address is #opensource:glasgow.social - if you don't already use Matrix this is the invite link: https://glasgow.social/matrix
