The Screening Room
One of the great joys of open source is that it can unite geographically dispersed people to work together on software and other projects. This often happens asynchronously, via email and other tools. However, sometimes there are real benefits to having a live meeting. When that happens, keeping track of people’s availability in different time zones becomes a challenge.
Thankfully, a challenge no more. “Meeting for Good” is new open source software that solves that problem. Check out the overview video and then give it a try.
Be sure to tell your open source friends in other countries about this resource. Then go and build something that has never been built before.
