Open Source Developers Club in Modiin, Israel

I was dragging my feet for a long time with this, but since the Modiin HUB has opened its gates I have no more excuses.

They were kind enough to host our first meeting, and let me start to organize regular meetings in the Modiin HUB.

So I am happy to announce the Modiin branch of the Open Source Developers Club.

The name originally came from Autralia where they mostly organize annual conference. Even in Israel we had such a conference back in 2006, but organizing a conference is a lot of work with a very short impact.

Having regular meetings requires a different kind of work, more persistent, but the impact can be ongoing. It can also build a community.

At our first meeting on February 23, 2014, I gave a talk about MongoDB, the NoSQL database and I think there were between 20-30 people.

The next meeting will be on March 25, 2014, introducing the Dart programming language. (again by yours truly).

Later, probably during April there is going to be a talk about Android. Details will be announce on the mailing list of OSDC-Modiin, and on various other forums.

In any case, I'd like to invite you to join us on our mailing list and on the upcoming meetings.
