Homebrew Website Club Berlin #15 on 19 Oct 2017

Sebastian Greger

Due to storm “Xavier” we sadly had to cancel our meetup on 5 October at short notice, so here’s the rescheduled event - we keep the two-week interval in order to stay in sync with Homebrew Website Clubs around the globe:

Based on a unanimous decision from last time, the next Homebrew Website Club Berlin meeting on Thursday 5 October is going to be - for the first time in our short history - a true “hands on” session: bring your laptop and something you’d like to hack on (can be anything from the most simple updates to your website content to advanced experiments on your server) and join us for an evening of exchanging ideas, tricks and solutions for running our own sites.

As always, we are of course most happy to introduce new attendees to the IndieWeb philosophy and existing techniques. No previous knowledge or experience is required: if you are interested in working on - or even just having - your own homepage, along with both conceptual and technical discussions around an open and independent web, welcome to drop by.

We gather starting from 18:30, with an “official start” at 19:00; stay as long as it is fun, usually we hang around for about two hours. Drinks and candy bars are available for purchase.

Homebrew Website Club is a bi-weekly meetup of people passionate about or interested in creating, improving, building, designing their own website, in the same structure as the classic Homebrew Computer Club meetings.
