IndieWebCamp NYC 2019 was a two-day maker event for creating and/or improving your personal website and the seventh IndieWebCamp in NYC!
It was held 2019-10-05 and 2019-10-06 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 two days computer science students, hackers, designers, engineers, and everyone interested in the web 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 journalists 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 journalists. It is clear truth soon followed.
Regardless of your studies or what you do for a living #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.

Pace University looks forward and meets the challenges of educating 21st century leaders. Nowhere is that more apparent than at the Seidenberg School where faculty prepare students for careers that don’t yet exist, using tools that have not yet been invented.
ReVIEW Talent Feedback System improves teaching and learning by focusing on the feedback teachers and employees get from coaches and supervisors.
