celebration time, my book, obnoxious joy 

As in the last years, we will have a Hackathon in Berlin to work on Friendica. The nice people of the youth-club E-LOK are kindly providing us again with the venue. Thanks a lot for this! Friendica developers will meet over the first weekend in November (Nov 2nd / 3rd) near Ostkreuz Station in Berlin to work together on current issues of the code and brainstorm about upcoming plans for Friendica. If you are interested to join the Hackathon, as developer or as curious user of Friendica, please contact @tobias ahead of the Hackathon. share tweet share share

NYC folks: if you'd like a free ticket to my day long workshop this Friday about, essentially, how to run a great Mastodon instance for your community, I have discount codes!

It's based on my https://runyourown.social guide but it uses the guide as a jumping off point and I get into some of the nitty gritty, including things like "how to stay on top of Mastodon releases and keep your community informed of new features if you don't know anything about programming"

But it isn't magic. It's Brenda, a 26-year-old single mother who lives Kibera, Africa's largest slum, and perhaps the toughest neighbourhood on earth, where hundreds of thousands of people live in a space not too much bigger than London's Hyde Park. Β»
