IndieWebGuides is a documentation project Calum Ryan started at IndieWebCamp Nuremberg 2017 following the outcome of previous onboarding sessions at IndieWebCamps. It’s a documentation of what the IndieWeb community is about written for and aimed at non-technical users.
The structure and presentation of information draws on inspiration from sites including gov.uk. Terms and technologies are categorised into select groups described by their overall purpose.
The aim of the site is to present and communicate in a language that a range of non-technical users will understand and feel more inclined to explore and participate in the community further. The style of writing attempts to consider different personas and how this relates to individuals in their own goals, behaviour and decision processes.
There is ongoing work to develop the project further with more content along with open collaboration welcomed through Github to add more guides.
