The regular Homebrew Website Clubs I’ve organised over the past year in London have helped me to become a lot more productive in IndieWeb related tech, however; the post-work two-hour meetup doesn’t always allow enough time and energy to focus on major development work, inspiration and research that a 2-day IndieWebCamp provides.
This year I’m excited to be in Germany for both IndieWebCamp Düsseldorf and Nuremberg.
Some of the things that I would like to achieve at the next IndieWebCamp(s):
- Extending functionality and documentation for the Jekyll Webmentions plugin
- Extending and documenting further my Webmention Endpoint Discovery to pass all tests on webmention.rocks
- Streamlining the UI for my homepage posts stream
- Develop my own Internet Archive plugin
Some possible topics of discussion for day one could include:
- Making your website into a Progressive Web App - what are PWAs, benefits they can offer and how IndieWeb-related tech can integrate with them, e.g. draft posts offline. Plus what are the big silos doing with PWAs?
- Publishing 2017 review - discussion on what we’re publishing on the web and how.
- Making an accessible and diverse IndieWeb community how do we bring in new people to the community and not scare people away?
For now these are just a few of my ideas but I’m sure they’ll be a synergy of thoughts and ideas from other IndieWebCampers for discussion on the day…
