Doing Politics, Advocacy and Organizing with Open Source Software, Platforms and APIs

Doing Politics, Advocacy and Organizing with Open Source Software, Platforms and APIs

Starts: Friday, Aug. 3 10:00 AM (Eastern)

Ends: Friday, Aug. 3 11:15 AM (Eastern)

Room: 207

This caucus will feature quick demos/lightning talks about Spoke (it’s like Hustle and Relay), CiviCRM (contact/constituent relationship management), Mattermost (a ‘Slack-alike’), Rapid Pro (txt tool used by resistbot), the OSDI API, and a few other projects and platforms that use open source (“OS”) software for advocacy, organizing or electoral campaigns. To be followed by Q and A, discussion, networking opportunities. We’ll avoid ‘ideological’ arguments re OS versus ‘closed source’/proprietary, and focus on what OS tools are useful, and can complement and integrate with other platforms.
