This past weekend I attended the second IndieWeb Summit in Portland. This was my fifth IndieWebCamp event, which got me thinking about the things that keep me coming back.

HWC Baltimore 2017-06-28 Wrap-Up

Baltimore's June 2017 meetup for Homebrew Website Club met at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center on June 28th.

Below are notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup.

jonathanprozzi.net - Been very busy with work. Wrote a couple of posts since the last meeting. Tonight started a reflective post about his decision to use Hugo for his site vs Wordpress, which he already uses a lot for work. Feels like he has learned a little bit of Go (which Hugo is written in), but mostly has just learned Hugo and felt that's held him back. Interested in the Wordpress API and maybe move his site over because he wants to post more and still learn.

eddiehinkle.com - Been working on his site rewrite in Angular Universal. Today worked on micropub media endpoint. Is saving files successfully, now needs to add file extensions and return the Location URL. Also been working on Indigenous, his iOS micropub client. Been switching back and forth between the two as he makes progress or gets stuck on one or the other. Other stuff since last time: adding OwnYourSwarm, OwnYourGram. Having a micropub client on his phone has enabled him to send lots and lots of likes - enough that he decided to move likes out of his main social stream page and treat them as a reply.

djfalcon23 (domains currently expired) - been learning web development on and off for the last year. Now building a portfolio site using Bootstrap and trying out React, but it is a lot. Also trying to (re-)learn Android development.

martymcgui.re - Went to IndieWeb Summit and it was amazing! Added checkins to his site w/ OwnYourSwarm while there because of jealousy of seeing other folks checking in with Swarm. Really attracted to the gamification, but wants to make a checkin client so he doesn't have to give them his data. Also been cleaning up microformats on his site so that reply contexts on other site and in readers like Woodwind look better.

Chatted a bit about:

  • "Double-dipping" - choosing side projects that involve technology you already need to use (or learn) for work
  • Angular Universal, basically a server-side render of Angular which includes a static rendering of markup as well as all the scripts and data to "hydrate" the page
  • Saving posts on Facebook and trying to PESOS to a bookmark post, but the Facebook API seems to have those locked down.
  • Learning React is pretty overwhelming, lots of tooling and stuff up front that doesn't feel connected to a project.
  • Guided learning w/ online systems with guided courses like Pluralsight have been really helpful for Jonathan.
  • Gamification of Foursquare - coins for photos and random things, comparison with friends, weekly generated summaries with titles like "Weekend Getaways"
  • Talked about how some aspects of the "design language" of web sites have converged and solidified several years ago. djfalcon23 likes looking at the designs on the welovewebdesign Instagram page. Wants to see more like that in the world.
  • Talked about IndieWeb Summit and the videos available, particularly the Wordpress sessions.
  • Spent a lot of time on the Personal Web Sites examples.
    • Awesome suggestion by djfalcon23 to bring an inspirational website to the next meetings.

We hope that you'll join us for the next HWC Baltimore, which will meet on July 12th and then again July 26th at the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center!

Great first day of #IndieWeb Summit! Really enjoyed the opening talks by Aaron, Tantek, Lily, and Ryan.

Also really loved the discussions about special micropub clients, events, updating the IndieWeb site to be less dev-heavy, and especially the lovely tour of interesting personal pages on the web.

Now for dinner and socializing and sleep!

In case you were wondering why woodwind.xyz and silo.pub were down for ages, the database had finally filled up the disk. I eventually willed myself out of entropy and wrote a cron job to delete entries older than a year (or more than 2000th in their feed, from e.g. twitter-atom) …

Hi! We're so glad you registered for IndieWeb Summit this year! We're just ten days away from the fun, so here are a few things we'd like to share to make this a great event.
πŸ”– Bookmarked Feed reader revolution: it’s time to embrace open & disrupt social media – AltPlatform http://altplatform.org/2017/06/09/feed-reader-revolution/

“Ideally the increased competition will prod current social silos to open up and compete on a more even playing field in which they’re supporting these open protocols as well. Then anyone with a web presence can use it to communicate from one website to another (or one permalink URL to any other permalink URL) on the internet, inΒ a way that’s as simple and easy as any of the methods that’s currently available in the closed social spectrum.”
