Indie Web Camp Brighton is happening again. It will be on the weekend of July 11th and 12th (coinciding with the big US Indie Web Camp in Portland at the same time) and it will once again be at 68 Middle Street.
You should come.
If you haven’t been to an Indie Web Camp before, you should definitely come. The event is always inspiring and productive in equal measure. The first day consists of Barcamp-style talks and discussions. The second day is filled with heads-down work, made all the more productive by the presence of other people working on similar issues that are more than happy to help out.
There are two kinds of people who should come to Indie Web Camp Brighton:
- Someone who has their own website and is looking to make it better, and
- Someone who wants their own website.
That’s basically it. There’ll be nitty-gritty discussions and implementations of formats and tools to help out, but basically it’s all about having a place on the web to call your own.
At Indie Web Camp Germany a few weeks ago—which was excellent—there was a really nice emergent thread on building blocks: microformats, webmention, micropub, and all that nerdy stuff.
At the same time, there was a really great thread on interface design. How do we make writing on our own websites as nice as writing on Medium?
I can imagine a similar two-pronged approach emerging at Indie Web Camp Brighton. That’s why I’d love to see just as many designers as developers showing up.
So basically, whether you’re in the world of UX, design, or development, and whether you’ve already got your own website or you’d like to have your own website …you should come.
You can sign up to attend here.
Once you’ve done that, if you’ve got your own website, you can log in to the Indie Web Camp wiki using your domain and add yourself to the list of participants (if you don’t have your own website or can’t log in, I can add you to the list).
It’s going to be a lot of fun, and I guarantee it’s also going to be highly productive—hope to see you there!
