Homebrew Website Club Berlin #11 on 12 Jul 2017

Sebastian Greger

The 10th meetup of the Homebrew Website Club Berlin again covered a wide range of topics related to the Indieweb, with a strong focus on everything related to Webmentions. Special thanks to Sven, whose explanations were truly an eye-opener even for those who already thought to know Webmentions well. A lot of ideas and ToDos were jotted down, and next week we’ll among other things see if anybody created something new from these sparks.

Our main topic on July 12, however, is going to be Micropub - a protocol that allows publishing to a variety of platforms and can easily be implemented in many existing CMS. Join us to find out more about this exciting development, or to discuss any other web-related itches or ideas you might have!

The schedule, as always:

  • 18:30 Warm-up: Gathering the crowd, catching up, getting to know each other

  • 19:00 Micropub intro: What is Micropub? How can I get started?

  • After: Hands-on experimentation, if wished. Otherwise the usual show-and-tell and conversations, around anything “personal web”
