Stata Center room D463 with seating

IndieWebCampCambridge 2015 is the second IndieWebCamp hosted March 19-20 by MIT in Cambridge, MA, USA; one of several IndieWebCamps in 2015.

IndieWebCampCambridge 2015

Join us at MIT for two days of a BarCamp-style gathering of web creators building and sharing open web technologies to empower users to own their own identities & content, and advance the state of the indie web!

The IndieWeb movement is a global community that is building an open set of principles and methods that empower people to take back ownership of identity and data instead of relying on 3rd party websites.

At IndieWebCamp you’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos. Along the way you’ll get a solid grounding in the history and future of Microformats, domain ownership, IndieAuth, WebMention and more!
