For a while now we’ve been hearing about the value and potential of open source development. Some of us already use open source services and products for our CMS solutions, or to get us access to information sources. We may even have explored creating open source software ourselves.
May’s meeting is a chance to hear more about the ethos behind open source, and see some great examples of it in action.
Our main speaker is Robin Johnson, a big advocate of open source, with the exciting title of Developer Evangelist at SendGrid, an email marketing company who do lots of open source. https://sendgrid.com/blog/robin-johnson-developer-evangelist/
We’d also like you to bring your examples of open source projects you’ve worked on, or seen in action. Oliver from Friends of the Earth will be showing us their mapping tool, and we know there are lots of other great examples out there, so please bring yours.
When: Weds 6 April, 4pm
Where: Article 19, Farringdon. Map here.
