30min: Hitobito - a Free Software Community Solution for Everybody

FSFE community session


Community solutions based on free software unite companies and organizations with the same or similar needs. The associated business model is based on the idea of crowdfunding. The customers form a community which finance the solution and develop it together with
potentially several companies or individuals. The architecture of the solution makes it possible to preserve individual needs and still benefit from the joint development.

In collaboration with the largest children and youth organizations in Switzerland, we built hitobito [0] - a solution for the membership and course management. I would like to explain the idea of ​​community solutions and share our experiences from the projects. Moreover, we
are constantly looking for new organizations or developers/companies who share our vision of collaborative software development. In this way, we help establishing free software, particularly in the public administration sector and NGOs.

The audience learns about the architecture of a customable business solution and how to run a successful business with free software.
