Bring you Project, We'll help you open it!

Bring your project and we'll help you open it! No matter the current state of your project, we can make it more open.

What does “open” mean?

  1. Easy to understand,
  2. Easy to share, remix and build on, and,
  3. Welcoming to all participants, from any background.

This applies to software projects, hardware projects, art projects, events and anything that you would like to work on with others locally and online. Here’s some examples

Current State of your projectPossible state after the event
I have a great idea!You have launched a project online with all the things folks need to collaborate with you!
I have an open project on github but nobody is contributing.Now your project is welcoming and inviting to folks and you have issues for folks to work on.
I have a project I’d like to share, but I’d like to keep my branding private for reasons.Now the guts of your project is open, but your branding is protected by a licenses that preserves control over your brand.
I made a giant pong controller and now folks in Chattanooga want one, but I don’t want to build it or ship it to themYou've publish the plan on Instructables, add a creative commons license and they can build it themselves!

No matter the state of your projects, we’d love to have you bring it to the event and we’ll move it along in the process of making it open source.

We are looking for projects that collaborators can work on during the event. Maybe you have a project that is up and running but not open-sourced. We can help take you to the next level. Perhaps you have an idea for a project and would like to start it out by working in the open. We can get you started. Or maybe you have some data stuck in a flat file somewhere you’d like to see made available to the world or have a API built. That works too! We’d love to build community connections between projects and contributors.

Glass_Beatstation

Created by: Athan Spathas

  • Type of Project: Open Source Software : Release your code using an OSS License
  • Stage of Project: It's a working project, but not open yet
  • Description: This is an evolving project oriented towards enabling anyone to make music intuitively on open source software: utilizing the modular nature of open source resources to be operated and formatted as the user desires. At this stage it is a beefed up loopstation, sequencer, and midi controller which uses a Novation Launchpad as the physical interface, python and open sound control to facilitate communication, hydrogen as drums, and uses Jack to synchronize and make audio/midi connections. It is intended to be used with a mic or other instruments if so desired

  • Description: Smartdown is for 'splainin', whether that be via a blog post, an article, or an app. Smartdown extends the widely used Markdown syntax with reactive Cells and Playables, which enable authors to combine prose, images, technical content, and interactivity into an Explorable Explanation. The Smartdown Javascript library is designed to be easily embeddable into a variety of common web platforms. Smartdown acts as a scaffolding to encourage non-technical authors to share their expertise on the web without the use of excessive syntax.
