Welcome to the planning page for future IndieWebCamps!

The IndieWebCamp community is planning numerous upcoming events, including future IndieWebCamps, regular Homebrew Website Club meetups, Popups, talks, and other proposals — if you'd like to help, please contribute to this page.

See individual IndieWebCamp home pages (typically /Year/City ) for specific camp planning. Related:

Planning

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

Clustered first by likelihood, including interest level and co-organizers that are regularly active in the community (e.g. in IRC), and then ordered roughly by known date if any, then expected/likely dates (in order to see what else there may be planned nearby or elsewhere)

2023

Let's plan 2023 IndieWebCamps!

We have had a few in-person IndieWebCamps in 2021-2022, notably in Germany, so we should continue planning those. We should also try to plan an in-person IndieWeb Summit 2023.

In order to encourage the most attendance, especially from a distance away from the city, locking in dates as far in advance as possible would be a positive.

And let’s continue planning online IndieWebCamps / Pop-ups, perhaps focused on particular timezones.

Hopefully some areas can organize local in-person IndieWebCamps in 2023 as folks are vaccinated, regional cases are eliminated, by area / city. Keeping that in mind:

If you live in one of the cities / states / countries below and are interested, add your name!

If you know of a suitable venue for hosting, add that as a possibility.

If you have a particular month of the year to recommend, add that!

Please offer your opinion/preference with a nested list item and +1/0/-1 signed!

General planning date notes:

  • December is tough due to holidays and lots of other events. Exception: a one day IWC e.g. 2015/SF.
  • November first half is the likely last chance to plan an IWC for the year.

Sorted roughly by how "real" a particular potential IWC is looking for a city based on a few fuzzy criteria:

  • likely/confirmed co-organizers (2+ required, at least one that is active in IRC/Slack, preferably at least 1 experienced successful organizer, preferably 3-4 total)
  • likely/confirmed venue
  • likely/confirmed dates
  • candidate dates (adjacent to an existing event folks would go to)

Pop-ups

Main article: 2023/Pop-ups

IndieWebCamp Pop-ups 2023 are standalone single topic sessions started in 2020, partly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has interrupted our long history of regularly occurring in-person camps in various cities.

While not designed to be the traditional two day camps of sessions and creating, they are meant to foster ongoing discussion and development of topics of interest to the IndieWeb community. In some cases, they can be an easier commitment for attendees than a physical IndieWebCamp.

If you're interested in hosting one, feel free to go to Session Proposals/Brainstorming page and begin to flesh out your event, or ask for help in the IndieWeb chat.

Summit

Planning dates and venue for IndieWebSummit 2023 in Portland!

11th IndieWebSummit! Venue possibilities

  • ... none yet that we know of

Dates — dependent on city re-opening and travel restriction lifting! Opinions:

  • Tantek Çelik — I’m up flexible scheduling (delaying a few months, like possibly as late as October if that means we can do it in-person)
  • David Shanske - Concur with Tantek Çelik that postponing to later is superior to losing another in-person event. It would be good if the Summit is the kick-off event to resume in-person get-togethers. Eager to return to Portland.
  • capjamesg - Keep me in the loop and I may attend!
  • Add yourself here… (see this for more details)

Adjacent events (avoid conflicts)

  • 2023-06-??…?? Pride weekend (last Saturday of June) in several cities "last weekend of June to cap off the month and to coincide with the anniversary of the Stonewall riots" per fluffy. Likely Seattle and San Francisco (extrapolating from past years)

Help Out

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 2019 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 [[2019/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?

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

Past planning notes can be found on each event's planning page, e.g.

To archive planning notes from this page:

  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.
