After all the ideas emerging from #platformcoop2017, let’s turn ideas into action.
CoLab Coop is excited to help convene an after-party for our fellow platform-coop obsessed tech developers and platform designers to come together and learn from one-another, connect, and co-create.
This event is co-sponsored by the Platform Cooperative Consortium! Want to also co-sponsor? You’ll get feature here, at the event, and elsewhere on The Internet! Buy a sponsorship ticket, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
— Technologists and designers who work on – or are interested in working on – platform cooperative projects.
— We’ll meet in an open space format to discuss projects, share tools, and collaborate on building technological infrastructure for the platform co-op economy.
— Sunday, Nov. 12 — one day after platform.coop/2017. RSVP for that event here!
— 11am-12:30pm — we’ll get together for food and sharing of our experience developing coop tech platforms and sharing the technologies we are most excited about using to build the infrastructure for platform cooperativism.
— 1-4pm — we’ll use our open space to gather around shared interests and opportunities! Be ready to dream big with others, and to get real about the first steps we can take, together.
— Identify a Platform Coop toolkit – discuss existing technologies that support Platform Coop development projects.
— Nurture a community of mutual-support in creating platform coop platforms.
— Identify needs for a successful platform coop development ecosystem: libraries, standards, communications infrastructure, etc.
— Develop working groups and connections for ongoing work.
