Hey Mastodons, I hear you like open source and federation, so I'd like to tell you about gettogether.community/ an open source, federated(*) event planning service similar to Meetup

It's free to use, and while it's still very early development it is live! Try it yourself, share it with your friends, start a team ahd have a Get Together!

* Federation is simple and minimal, any help would be most welcomed. Source code is at github.com/GetTogetherComm/Get mastodon.cloud/media/cPwAJ8QWw

@mhall119 we talked about protocols before, but probably ActivityPub, the protocol Mastodon uses, would be a good match for that. Problem being there's not a lot of implementations to crib from.

@ted The Place and Event parts of ActivityPub would work, but I'm not aware of any other implementation using them for anything, are you?

@ted I could also use help from somebody who is familiar with the ActivityPub/ActivityStream protocols already, rather than trying to learn them while I'm implementing them. For now I have a simple JSON feed and a script to pull from it.

@mhall119 yeah, that's a problem. I think the number of people who are really familiar is enough to fit on a small bus. So there's probably not a lot of spare capacity there.

@mhall119 @ted Some of the folks working on #aardwolf might have helpful input here...
