Welcome to the � Federation
Mastodon and the Fediverse

On the Saturday 8th of December Wtt�F will host an evening roundtable as a general introduction into Mastodon and the Fediverse. How does it work? What are the underlying concepts? Who made it? What has been the history behind it? What kind of different communities inhabit this Fediverse? What does it mean to host such a community?

It will be hosted together by an administrator of a large Mastodon community and an administrator of a small Mastodon community. Both are also contributors to the fediverse.

As part of this edition of Wtt�F we will also spend the afternoon together to look at the documentation and translation of the Mastodon project. How does the translation of open source projects work? How are projects communicated? How can the technical concepts be made accessible for larger audiences without diluting their significance?

If you would like to join the worksession, please register in advance by sending a mail to info[at]varia.zone.
