Session Ideas


Tantek Γ‡elik #performance. Measuring & improving site/permalink load time.

  • "40% of people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load". - Google I/O "Mobile Web: State of the Union"
  • Tools. How can we easily measure our own indieweb site homepage and permalink load times?
  • Techniques. What techniques can we use to help our sites load in less than 3 seconds to provide a better/faster experience than silos?
    • Whose sites already do this?
  • Subsecond! "AMP files load in an average of 400ms" (ibid)
    • Challenge accepted. How can we make our homepages load in an average of 400ms?

Tantek Γ‡elik #offline. Making viewing and posting work offline work with your website


Progressive Web Apps

Kyle Mahan #PWA. The overlap with #offline might be pretty significant here. Discuss building offline-first web apps that can be installed to the Home screen. Maybe a particular (self-serving) focus on how to make a reader like Woodwind a PWA. I don't even really know what this is, but I'm going to try to learn before Saturday!


  • Turning a WordPress site into an Indieweb paradise
  • Improving the WordPress Onboarding Process
  • Improving and Iterating on Indieweb WordPress Plugins - Brainstorming and Workshopping
  • minisite for Indiewebifying WordPress - do we need one, would it be useful?

  • Primarily looking at static site generators
  • Possible solutions: Bridgy+Telegraph, silo.pub, ???
