IndieWebWeek Vlissingen 2019
⚓ We're meeting for a
Hackweek around ActivityPub and Federation right before FOSDEM 2019 !
The importance of owning your data is getting more awareness every year.
But there is still a lot of work to do to help people to understand what “owning your data” actually means at all.
To achieve this and help people getting started, we're meeting for a bar-camp like collaboration and hackweek in Vlissingen.
Join us right before FOSDEM and learn how to use open web technologies or develop Open Source to empower and – maybe more importantly – encourage users to own their own content and identities. Let's create sustainable FLOSS communities and raise awareness in politics and media around IndieWeb. We will tinker in a water tower, the base for the event.
Join us for five days of brainstorming, working, helping.
At least 24 spots are available for now incl. 8 cost-free sleeping rooms.
