Indie Web Camp Brighton 2015

The importance of owning your data is getting more awareness. To grow it and help people get started, we're meeting for a bar-camp like collaboration in Brighton for two days of brainstorming, working, teaching, and helping.

Join us in Brighton and learn how to use open web technologies to empower and – maybe more importantly – encourage users to own their own content and identities.
