    Snowdrift.coop meetup and Haskell hack session

    Snowdrift.coop is a volunteer-built non-profit community project focused on a new sustainable matching system to coordinate the global community in better funding shareable freely-licensed works.

    This event is the first of what we hope will be ongoing series of local Portland meetups. The community includes people on many continents across the globe, but we have a strong Portland foundation with one of the co-founders, the lead developer, and several active volunteers and supporters in the area.

    The Snowdrift.coop platform uses the Yesod web framework written in Haskell. Other technologies and relevant work includes basic HTML/CSS/JavaScript and general design, organizing, and other non-technical tasks.

    At this hacking session, we'll help new volunteers get started with the code along with casual discussion, planning, and organizing work appropriate to whoever shows up. Complete newcomers are welcome, no particular experience or skills needed to get involved.

    We're hoping the venue works out well, but will likely try other locations in the future (offices, libraries, other coffee shops / bars etc as appropriate). We picked this as a low-key somewhat central place. We will start around 10AM and intend to spend a good portion of the day there, especially in case some people can only come later in the afternoon.
