IndieWebCamp Edinburgh 2015

The first IndieWebCamp in Edinburgh, but just one of many IndieWebCamps!

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

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


IWC Edinburgh 2015

The canonical signup for this event is the wiki Guest List page. To add yourself, you need to:

  • Sign into the wiki with indieauth (two-step instructions, screenshots)
  • Then edit the Guest List to fill in your details.
  • OR if that's not an option for you (eg. if you don't have your own domain yet) ping Amy Guy (by email, twitter or IRC) and she'll be happy to add you to the guest list on your behalf.
  • Alternatively sign up on Attending.io, which will have the same effect.
