This workshop will consist of a short presentation of the Ecobytes model for community-based IT, as well as of any other collectives that seek to provide non-commercial/post-capitalist/solidarity models of development and service provision.

Aspects like such as decentralized networks, solidarity economic models, agile development for the grassroots, "hacking around" legal obligations, survival and fair payment of admins/developers, among many others, are invited to be brought to this interactive session.

We will try to map possibilities, have an exchange around the topic and, depending on the interest of the participants, attempt to establish cooperation between cooperatives.

If you are an willing hacker frustrated with your commercial, capitalist work and want to help/join such a collective with your skills, this can be an ideal space for a first contact.
