Thanks to everyone for coming to IndieWeb Summit 2017! We had a fantastic and productive weekend!
This year was the best documented IndieWeb event yet! Thanks to everyone who contributed to documenting the sessions and demos!
We started off with a few keynotes, videos of which you can find below:
What is the IndieWeb (6min) - Aaron Parecki
- State of the IndieWeb (15min) - Tantek Çelik
- A Brief History of My Website (19min) - Lillian Karabaic
- Indie Map (26min) - Ryan Barrett
We then continued with everyone in the room introducing themselves in under a minute each, and demoing something on their website. (Video 32min)
We had a variety of unconference sessions on Saturday, all of which have video archives as well as thorough notes! You can find the sessions and videos linked from the Saturday schedule page!
On Sunday we started with two workshops:
Intro to IndieWeb Building Blocks, a quick overview of Microformats, Webmention, WebSub and Micropub
- IndieWebifying your WordPress
Photos and Blog Posts
You can also find more photos from the weekend, and a few people have already written some great wrap-up posts on their websites!
