Hey Mastodons, I hear you like open source and federation, so I'd like to tell you about https://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! #gettogether
@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?
Not aware of any widely used AP implementations that use locations, events, etc. but I think Nextcloud@mastodon.xyz is heading in that direction.
Also I think objects can be (or contain) multiple types so an event could also be a note which Mastodon could munch on making for interesting ideas to spread announcements? My AP knowledge is limited though.
@cwebber is a busy person but a good person to bounce ideas off...
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you. Mastodon.cloud is maintained by Sujitech, LLC.
