Welcome to the planning page for future IndieWebCamps!

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

See each individual IndieWebCamp's home page (typically /Year/City ) for planning specific to that camp.

Planning

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

Clustered first by 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)

2021

Pop-ups

Main article: 2021/Pop-ups

IndieWebCamp Pop-ups 2021 are stand alone single topic sessions started in 2020, partly in response to the Coronavirus 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.

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.

2022

Let's plan 2022 IndieWebCamps!

For now let’s continue planning online IndieWebCamps, perhaps focused on particular timezones.

Hopefully some areas can organize local in-person IndieWebCamps in 2022 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

Nearby 2022 Events

To keep in mind while planning

  • 2022-01-01 New Year's Day
  • 2022-02-14 Valentine's Day (Monday)
  • 2022-04-17 Easter
  • 2022-05-30 US Memorial Day

Summit

Planning dates and venue for IndieWebSummit 2022 in Portland!

11th IndieWebSummit! Venue possibilities

  • Mozilla PDX (venue availability TBD)

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.
  • Add yourself here… (see this for more details)

Adjacent events (avoid conflicts)

  • 2022-06-25…26 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)

Proposed 2022 Events

Potential Cities

The following are twinkles in co-organizer's eyes - help find a venue and/or narrow to a date range!

  • Seattle - would be great to host something like this in 2019, 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.

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.

North America East (Online)

IndieWebCamp East 2020 has been set for November 14-15 and planning details for IndieWebCamp East have been moved to 2020/East/Planning.
