Details

For the very first meeting of PatchMakers, we'll get an introduction to open source, create a CFP for Open Source Projects to speak at upcoming meetups, and get to know one another.

1900 Pizza and Networking
1930 Open Source + CFP Discussion
2000 PatchMaking

This event will establish a few guidelines for open source projects who are interested in presenting at this meet up - recorded / documented it so that the information is captured for future reference.

Tonight we will literally start a repository on GitHub with an open source license and create the CFP and introductory documentation for PatchMakers - attendees will be invited to create patches / pull requests immediately.

So bring your laptop.

If you're keen to get started, opensource.com has a great introduction to open source software [0] and the open source way [1].
