How To Add An Event

To add an event to the IndieWeb Events Listing, just edit this page and copy paste one of the event templates in the source into the right most-recent-first spot in the Upcoming list above!

In addition, for Homebrew Website Club (HWC) events:

  • Add it to Template:Homebrew Website Club
  • Create the event permalink page for it (copy paste from a previous HWC permalink page) if necessary
  • Add yourself to the RSVP on that page for the city you’re (co-)organizing
  • Update next-hwc, Main_Page, Events, and IRC /topic (or ask an admin) to link to that next HWC (assuming that is the next one)

And ideally:

  • Create an indie event on your own site for the HWC for your city, ideally with invitations to people that have previously participated.
  • POSSE that indie event to one or more applicable event silos/commons of your choice (e.g. Calagator, Facebook)
  • Add both those URLs to the section for your city
  • Be sure to have Bridgy or some other backfeed setup to receive RSVPs from the silo copy to your indie event.
  • Invite folks on the silo/silos you POSSEd to, to the POSSE copy/copies.




Don't see an IndieWeb event near you? Plan one and add it here!
Jump on IRC, find folks near you, and plan an IndieWeb event/drinkup/dinner/meetup/hackathon/camp together.

More IndieWebCamp events are also being planned!


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

Why

Why do we use this page for events?

Some of the benefits of using the wiki for events include:

  • There is no fixed template for events, so we are able to add new sections to the event page as needed
  • The layout of event pages has evolved over time as our needs have changed

Issues

Mediawiki awkward for events

One of our more awkward uses of MediaWiki is using it as an events calendar.

Multiple places to update

  • Adding an event like an IndieWebCamp or Homebrew Website Club involves updating several locations
    • Home page list of events needs to be updated manually
    • Events on events are updated manually
    • IWC or HWC templates are updated manually
    • /next-iwc and /next-hwc redirects are updated manually

Creating new HWC pages is tedious

  • Copy+pasting to create new HWC pages is tedious, and is typically only done by Gregor and Tantek
  • Entering all the HTML required to format the page as an h-event is error prone

Wiki pages require manual RSVP

  • Not easily able to add new features like accepting RSVPs to the wiki pages themselves

Event pages need better presentation

  • The event pages look like wiki pages, with little visual hierarchy, and are not immediately recognizable as an event you can RSVP to to the general public

Brainstorming

Separate Events Site

We used 2016.indieweb.org for the 2016 IndieWeb Summit. The IndieWeb Summit 2016 event page was an initial attempt at creating a more friendly format for our events.

We have also set up 2016.indieweb.org/nyc2 for IndieWebCamp NYC2.

Possibilities for expanding use of a separate site for events.

  • Continue with YYYY.indieweb.org
  • New subdomain events.indieweb.org

Some options to consider:

  • keep using YYYY.indieweb.org for annual summits, and YYYY.indieweb.org/CITYABBR for specific IndieWebCamps
  • build our own minimal event interface
  • adopt an existing running project such as Calagator
  • wait for an in-progress project such as Dark Matter Eventer

Requirements: (not comprehensive)

  • Some level of unstructured content on event pages, so that we can allow our use of it to continue to evolve over time.
  • Be able to quickly duplicate an event rather than set up recurring events (like Calagator's "clone" function)
  • Events must support multiple locations and varying start times and timezones per location (our HWC events do this currently)

Ideas:

  • Quickly add links to posts (notes, photos, articles) about an event
  • Highlight photos from events
    • Upload photos directly to the wiki or event page
    • By retrieving linked photos in indieweb photo posts / tweets / instagram posts
  • RSVP via Webmention like http://2016.indieweb.org
  • RSVP directly on the page (an "I'm Going" button after you're logged in)

Other community examples:

  • WordCamps, which have many properties in common with Indiewebcamps
    • Uses wordcamp.org (likely derived from barcamp.org), a TLD different from the community: wordpress.org
      • Philosophy: a main landing page and using subdomains for the individual events, with year/location.
      • Making wordcamp.org itself the page for upcoming events
      • Use subdomains on wordcamp.org for specific events
      • Issues: they had an issue with URL structure last year.
