Let's discuss and test out various Libre alternatives to Slack, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

The seventh annual (except for the year we couldn't be bothered to get up for breakfast) unprofessional delegates networking session will be running on Tuesday evening.  
  
 +
* '''When''': Tuesday night (when the PDNS is on). We'll be there by 6; food will probably start being edible between 6:30 and 7. (Unless you're a werewolf, of course.)
 +
* '''Where''': [https://goo.gl/maps/i36iDMb8sNS2 Eastern Beach Reserve], just before the Beach House.
 +
* '''What''': As is traditional, a barbecue! We'll be selling barbecued food and soft drinks.
 +
** '''Food''': Barbequed food, with both carnivore and herbivore options, probably wrapped in a bread product. Possibly some sort of salad. We'll see. $5/head.
 +
** '''Soft Drink''': Coke, Coke Zero, Solo, Lemonade. $1/can.
 +
** '''Alcohol''': '''Strictly BYO only'''; selling alcohol is in contravention of various state and city laws, and we're too pretty for jail. Note that Geelong City Council laws do not permit alchol consumption after sunset — try to plan to be done about 8:40. (You can always move on elsewhere, of course.)

Stuff we did:
+
[[Category:Events]]
* Demo'd Prosody XMPP Server with an IRC bridge to Freenode, and a bridge to a GNUSocial instance
+
* Set up a test MatterMost chat server as an alternative to Slack. Mattermost is written in Go and is pretty straightforward to install either as a Docker image or following the setup instructions.
+
* You can log in and check out our Mattermost Instance with this invite link which we will keep going for the duration of the conference: [http://taslug.org.au:8065/signup_user_complete/?id=npin91z8fibn9rz8kimt3rw9wo Team invite link]
+
 
+
 
+
== Agenda ==
+
 
+
Let's start by spending half an hour discussing the problems and ways of solving them, during the discussion people are encouraged to play with software on their devices and do web research.
+
 
+
By the time the Linux Australia AGM starts I would like people to be working on installing and testing various software. People who are there just for the discussion can then attend the AGM. I believe that coding is more important than voting as the people standing for office are all good.
+
 
+
==== Topics to consider ====
+
 
+
This list is broad and we will probably run out of time but perhaps we will have some shared chatroom or group post tag to continue the BoF online.
+
 
+
* Learning about being a user of libre IM and federated social networking, looking at the feature sets - those not interested in running their own instances or IM servers can create accounts.
+
* Who to follow on these alternative social networks?
+
* Connecting/extending networks - bridging with plugins/bots, or working with common protocols?
+
* How to contribute? Which projects are looking for what help
+
* Moving between networks

Have a phone, tablet, or laptop to use to access the services (preferably all 3).

If you are a sysadmin have a laptop to access servers and install software.

Revision as of 08:06, 2 February 2016

The seventh annual (except for the year we couldn't be bothered to get up for breakfast) unprofessional delegates networking session will be running on Tuesday evening.

  • When: Tuesday night (when the PDNS is on). We'll be there by 6; food will probably start being edible between 6:30 and 7. (Unless you're a werewolf, of course.)
  • Where: Eastern Beach Reserve, just before the Beach House.
  • What: As is traditional, a barbecue! We'll be selling barbecued food and soft drinks.
    • Food: Barbequed food, with both carnivore and herbivore options, probably wrapped in a bread product. Possibly some sort of salad. We'll see. $5/head.
    • Soft Drink: Coke, Coke Zero, Solo, Lemonade. $1/can.
    • Alcohol: Strictly BYO only; selling alcohol is in contravention of various state and city laws, and we're too pretty for jail. Note that Geelong City Council laws do not permit alchol consumption after sunset — try to plan to be done about 8:40. (You can always move on elsewhere, of course.)
    • All (any?) profits will benefit the conference charity: Give Where You Live.
