Forem allows you to build and self-host your new favorite gathering place on the internet with the same community software used by popular platforms like dev.to and CodeNewbie.
Setting up your own Forem requires the use of Git, Python 3.x, Ansible, Butane, Fedora CoreOS, a supported cloud provider (DigitalOcean, AWS, or Google Cloud), and your creativity once your community is up and running – but don’t worry. We’ll review all of this in the workshop so you can get the most out of our challenge and build the best community possible. Make sure your cloud account has credits applied to it before the workshop so you can deploy your Forem to production.
