Participating

Remote Participation

IndieWebCamp has a strong tradition of remote participation, typically using IRC, Google Hangouts and Etherpad during as well as after the event.

This year, we'll be using Mozilla's system for remote participation. We will broadcast the main room on our YouTube channel, and if you would like to join the discussions you will be able to call in from a computer. You can download Vidyo Desktop ahead of the event to speed up joining the call once we're live.

Note that Portland is on PDT, UTC-7.

If you can't get to the event, consider remote participating or finding/running an IndieWebCamp remote party near you.

📺 Livestream:


💻 Remote Participation:
