Let's have a retrospective of what happened in the EventFahrplan project in the last months and what is planned.


EventFahrplan is the project behind a couple of apps for Android which you might already have used at Remote Chaos Experience (rC3), Chaos Communication Congress (3xC3), Chaos Communication Camp, DiVOC, MRMCD, FrOSCon, GPN, Datenspuren, FIfFKon, FOSDEM, FOSSGIS and other events.

In this talk you will get to know not only the details of the programming work but also all the other topics which require time and engagement to run this project such as translation, design, documentation, advertisement, outreach, communication with users.

Currently, the project is run by one person with occasional - but very welcome - contributions in the form of code reviews, translation, pull requests or just time to discuss ideas. There is essential no financial backing for the project - all work is done in personal spare time. A few people are giving money via GitHub Sponsors - thank you!

After this talk and Q&A you will have solid understanding of how you can contribute to the project, shape its future or finance its development.

I am the maintainer of the EventFahrplan project for Android. I love opensource. I am a big open data enthusiast and part of the Code for Germany lab in Berlin.
