Planning

The following IndieWebCamps are currently being planned and need help figuring out a date - help co-organize!

Clustered first by co-organizers that are regularly active in the community (e.g. in IRC), and then ordered roughly by expected date (in order to see what else there may be planned nearby or elsewhere)

  • Seattle - would be great to host something like this in 2017, maybe co-sponsor with co-working space/venue
  • ...

Other possible cities - no specific plans or dates - just expressions of interest (which is fine too!). Feel free to add your city and sign it, indicating how you can help make it happen.

Help Out

Want to help out with one of those? Say something in IRC and add yourself to the page.

David Shanske is willing to help out with an Indiewebcamp, providing support and planning to the extent possible. This would include some volunteering. Depends on what is needed and when and is willing to try to work with anyone who needs help in the Northeastern United States, and possibly farther afield if sufficient notice.

Organize

Want to organize a 2017 IndieWebCamp in your town and don't see it above?

Start with:

  1. Find at least one committed co-organizer. This is the most important step.
  2. Add a link above to [[2017/YourCity]]
  3. Click it and create the new page, and continue with the steps listed in:

Homebrew Website Club

Having trouble finding a co-organizer for your city or unsure how to organize an IndieWebCamp by yourself?

Start a Homebrew Website Club chapter in your city to gather interested individuals and gauge interest in a full weekend IndieWebCamp!

FAQ

Creator camp not a hackathon

Q: Is IndieWebCamp a hackathon?

A: IndieWebCamps are creator camps focused on helping everyone develop, grow, and advance their personal indieweb presence.

The term "hackathon" has become to mean some sort of short term event where a group of people come up with a typically new project to develop just for the sake of the hackathon, often in a competitive environment, and often for prizes donated by one or more sponsors.

IndieWebCamp resembles that only in the aspect of group collaboration.

  • IndieWebCamp encourages you to work on and improve your existing personal site, not just a new site (unless you need a new site!)
  • IndieWebCamp encourages you to work on your personal site in a way that encourages longevity and your personal use beyond the camp itself.
  • IndieWebCamp focuses on collaboration instead of competition. There are all sorts of different experts at IndieWebCamp and we do our best to both ask questions of each other and help each other!
  • The prize(s) you win at IndieWebCamp are your own improved personal website, hopefully with new features you can then use day-to-day after the camp has completed!

As we do "hack" on stuff (our own websites), IndieWebCamps do have a "hack day" component of it, but certainly not "hackathon" in the commonly understood "corporate hackathon" sense.

Past Planning Notes

(lets figure out a way to archive past year's planning discussions, because the considerations/possibilities therein may help with future planning)

gRegor Morrill: My current steps for archiving:

  1. Add the event to IndieWebCamps if it isn't there already
  2. Add the event sub-page "Planning" if it doesn't exist yet, e.g. 2017/Planning
  3. Add a section == Initial Planning == to the event's Planning page
  4. Add a note in the new section "This is an archive of the initial planning for [event name], originally found here."
  5. Link the text "originally found here" to the latest, specific revision of this page where the notes last appeared.
  6. Copy/paste the latest planning notes from this page
  7. Remove the now-archived planning notes from this page.

HWC 2016

2016 Homebrew Website Club start date! Should we start the 2016 HWC meetups on:

  • 2016-01-06 only one week after 2015-12-30,
    • but avoids having a meetup land the day before US Thanksgiving
    • 0 Tantek Çelik ok with this. no longer any preference.
    • 0 gRegor Morrill OK with this. Not attending an HWC currently so does not impact me.
  • 2016-01-13 two weeks after 2015-12-30,
    • but collides with Wednesday before US Thanksgiving thus unlikely to have much (any) participation at US venues.
    • 0 Tantek Çelik ok with this.

Based on lack of strong input on this, we are going with the default continuing every two weeks from 2015-12-30 and starting 2016 HWC with 2016-01-13. - Tantek 14:56, 23 December 2015 (PST) (updated, no objections, going with this plan. Tantek 07:51, 31 December 2015 (PST))
