Hello PERSONNAME! Only a couple more days before we all come together for IndieWebCamp Austin! I am very much looking forward to the weekend, and I hope you all have a fantastic time while you're in Austin.

We still have a few spots left on the guest list, so invite a friend, co-worker, or two with a personal site (or who has said they want one!). They can register at https://2017.indieweb.org/austin

Here are a few last pieces of information before we meet. You may want to save this update so you can refer to it as you make your way to Austin for the festivities.

Weather

SOME GENERAL IDEA OF THE WEATHER. The temperature should range between the VAGUE LOW and VAGUE HIGH, with ANY PRECIPITATION expected ANY TIMES?.

General Schedule

Saturday will be a day of discussions, starting off with introductions and demos before lunch, and the rest of the day reserved for discussion sessions that will be proposed and lead by participants like you! We'll wrap at 5:00pm for some social time.

Sunday is a making / hacking day - time to put some of those ideas from Saturday into action! New designs, add features to (or starting building) your personal website, and help others do the same.

We'll have sponsored lunch brought in on Sunday, followed by more hacking. We'll close out with a round of demos before cleaning up and closing camp around 5:00pm.

You can find the full schedule on the wiki.

What to Work On?

Not sure what to work on at IndieWebCamp? Here are some ideas:

  • making your site "you" on the web (working on your identity, domain, design)
  • owning what you post (improving how you post to your site, how your posts look)
  • reaching your friends, colleagues, co-workers (where to POSSE)
  • owning your conversations (replying/liking/reposting from your site, and showing comments/responses to your posts, including backfeed from POSSE copies)
