Community Call - September 9,2023

FOSS United Chennai will be leading the next community call of FOSS United Volunteers from different city chapters.

Please read more about the community calls and the minutes from the previous call here

We have created a Jitsi meet for the purpose of these recurring calls.

Date - September 9,2023.
Time - 11AM - 12PM

Agenda for the meeting (will be updated once the different city volunteer teams add comments with their agenda)

  • Chennai team will be discussing our learnings from the August meetup that is scheduled on 26 August,2023. We will be sharing our learnings on how a community collaboration can be done whilst maintaining FOSS meetup standards. We will also be sharing our plans on the upcoming Software Freedom Day events, wherein we are collaborating with various FOSS communities across Tamil Nadu.

Note- This community call is for the FOSS community and not just FOSS United volunteers. We welcome everyone in the community call and a general discussion will be held after the meeting so as to know the thoughts of the community on how we can improve.

We hope to make this call more organised and well planned so that timely reminders can be sent to volunteers and most of the chapters can join in.

My suggestion would be to send updates about these calls to the volunteers mailing group at and/or creating a seperate telgram topic for community calls.

Lastly, I would request all chapters to comment out the agenda for the calls (maybe once they are done with their upcoming meetup). Also make sure you have gone through what was discussed in the previous call.

We look forward to seeing you next month.


Using will be better, Chennai team will be reminding through mails regarding community call :rocket:

Post mortem report for FOSS United Chennai August meetup updated at

The Hyd team doesn’t have much to share except that we have a meetup scheduled for 23 September and we are only now setting up the pages for CFP and RSVP. Let’s see how things turn out when we start only 2 weeks away from the meetup.

One interesting thing we are trying is doing an invited talk for the meetup. We have the Founder and CEO of Factly Rakesh Dubbudu talking about Open Data. At the next community call, we might have more information on how this experiment worked.
