On October 19th, with the support of the local Fedora Diversity & Inclusion Team, we invite you to attend the Fedora Women’s Day (FWD), an event created to highlight and celebrate the women in open source communities like Fedora and their invaluable contributions to their projects and community.
The FWD will take place at modulE powered by CIB, the space for startups, events and more…
It’s an opportunity to learn about free and open source software and jump-start your journey as a FOSS user and/or a contributor. It also provides a platform for women to connect, learn, and be inspired by other women in open source communities and beyond.
This meetup is open to all the attendees and is not a “women-only“ event. As the seats are limited don’t forget to register via Eventbrite.

|7:00 – 7:30 pm||How to cook your own open source event
(Speaker: Florian Effenberger AKA floeff)
Eight years ago, the idea of open source cooking in Munich first was on the table and since then took place over a dozen of times already.
After the first meal it became clear immediately: You indeed can apply the principles of free software communities to other areas of life. Many contributors working jointly on a common goal, each of them bringing in their individual skills and interests, to create something delicious and tasty many benefit from – lots of fun for everyone included!
Created as a rather, well, “spontaneous” idea during our open source meetings, many free software enthusiasts nowadays bring their kids and family along to meet, cook together, have a good time and lots of fun, all of that (mostly far away from smartphones, computers or wifi).
In this talk, Florian gives an overview of open source activities in Munich, shares some wild ideas for the future and explains why open source and cooking have more in common than you may actually think. Bon appétit!
|7:30 – 9:00 pm||Hackathon, networking and pizza!
After the introduction talks we will start the hackathon session, supporting the attendees with the first
contributions, sharing knowledge and some tasty foods!
Join us and have fun!
