This wiki page is for high level planning for IndieWebCamp NYC 2019.

  • Areas of responsibility are documented explicitly on this wiki (per 2018/NYC/Reflections need to be more clear).
  • Brainstorming which requires editing and iteration, especially when considering a number of choices where people may change their minds based on what we learn, is also being tracked on the wiki.

Possible Venue

    • A Saturday/Sunday combination maybe possible but would require two different locations.
    • Pace offered the following dates. Please add yourself with a +1 -1 or 0 to the options below:
