Open Source Chicago


This is a meetup for people who like to live open source.

We focus on creating opportunities for people to get together and be productive, whether that means working on your own projects, working on open source projects you contribute to, or learning new things.

And it doesn't have to be code! The open source philosophy transcends the specific tools you use to bring your project to life. Building open source software is, of course, open source, but so is writing for public knowledge, creating CreativeCommons images, and many other things! You can do any of that here with us.

Generally, we try to meet at least once a month on a weekend to work on projects together and chat. We also maintain a Google Drive space for people to use to share with the group ( -- please request write access if you'd like to contribute) which includes a "Meetup Ideas" document.

We meet electronically on Keybase @OpenSourceChi.

Hope to see you at our meetups!
