Community / Meetup


Our meetup program facilitates the growth of the global community of green software practitioners.

The GSF Meetup Community enables open source cooperation and involvement for all green software enthusiasts.  GSF aims to create a trusted ecosystem of people, standards, tooling and best practices for green software. The Meetup community is an excellent way of activating the base.

In October 2022, GSF released its new and upgraded Meetup Community, a playground for green software enthusiasts of any rank and order. Our goal is to consistently grown the network in different cities around the globe and is considerably increase membership in 2023.

Finding like-minded green software developers is extremely difficult. There is nowhere to turn to for interested individuals to learn more, get involved and get active without becoming a GSF member. This is particularly true for students or people wanting to venture into the green software space. Also, IT events are often in English, with local languages playing a subordinate role.

The GSF Meetup ecosystem has solved these issues by bringing together individuals interested in green software, enabling them to engage in local chapters and groups in their local language. 

It has also created a tool for GSF member organizations to get their employees involved, as well as a base for connecting with and hiring talent.
