IndieWebCamp Cambridge MIT 2016


For those who would like to watch or participate remotely, tune into the live chat (tons of realtime notes!) and the video livestream.

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!



Rooms D463 (Star) and G449 (Patil/Kiva) (see schedule for which room when), MIT Stata Centre, 32 Vassar St, Cambridge
