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

Note: I'm after instances with less than a 300 active users weekly.
Note 2: if you have more users, just reply to the poll with the amount of users.
Note 3: if you run other services on that VPS, make a guess of how much it cost proportionally
