About

Welcome to The Peers Community, a highly motivated community of people with a strong interest in free software and free culture.

We all help each other toward the common goal of supporting and growing free projects. The Peers Community provides a list of independent projects that all strive for free (as in freedom!) software and culture. If you would like to learn more about a particular project, feel free to reach out to them directly.

Projects Jam

Every Friday around 19:00Z - 21:00Z, we meet on irc.freenode.net #peers to collaborate on active Peers projects. Everybody has the opportunity to ask for help with any open issues in their projects, and we work together to try to fix them. We have a short list of quick project jam ideas.

Would you like to help too? Feel free to join us! It's a good opportunity to help a free project, and also to get to know us! You can also read about past Jams in the blog section.
