Open Source Club — Session #23

June 12, 2023, 6 p.m.

Do you want to work on open source but never find the time? Us too!

Join us in an open source hack night. Bring your own projects or choose one of these that we will be working on:

  • polis, an application for large scale open ended feedback, built with JavaScript, React.js, Node.js, Clojure. Used in Taiwan (g0v.tw / vTaiwan), by the UK government, by city councils in England, et al.
  • consul, a participatory democracy framework, built with Ruby and Rails, developed for the Madrid City government.
  • decidim, a participatory democracy framework, written in Ruby on Rails, originally developed for the Barcelona City government.
  • Citizen OS, an e-decisionmaking platform for communities, written in Node.js, TypeScript, Angular.
  • wikiciv, a wiki for building civilization from scratch, built with MediaWiki.

The plan for this event: Improve the code for one of these applications. Fix a bug or implement a small feature.
