building at 99 Madison avenue, New York, NY

IndieWebCamp NYC 2018 is a two-day maker event for creating and/or improving your personal website. All levels welcome! One of several 2018 IndieWebCamps and the sixth IndieWebCamp in NYC!

It will be held 2018-09-28 and 2018-09-29 at Pace University in Manhattan, New York City.

The importance of owning your data is getting more awareness. Yet we need to build both the technical and societal systems to ensure a free and open web for the future. We invite computer engineers, hackers, activists, teachers, students and journalist to this two day event.

For computer science students, hackers, and engineers come together to help build tools that will allow everyone to take control of their data and own their own domain. The top engineers in the world attend IndieWebCamps.

IndieWebCamp will also draw many educators who have taken interest in "Domain of One's Own" for students. Many university faculty will attend both locally and remotely to discuss how we bring the #IndieWeb to K12 and higher education.

For journalist at the event we want to rethink how local news can support the local news. No one took a greater hit from the silos than journalist. It is clear truth soon followed.

Regardless of your studies or what you #IndieWebCamp is for everyone. If you just want to launch your first blog and have never been online before...well then you are the guest of honor. Come down and take control of your digital identity.
