When you post something on the web, it should belong to you, not a corporation. Too many companies have gone out of business and lost all of their users’ data. By joining the IndieWeb, your content stays yours and in your control.


This session will be a 101 introduction to the IndieWeb: its philosophy, specs and software it is building so you can connect yourself with others through your website. We will cover concepts like webmentions, microformats, micropub, POSSE and many more. We'll do a live demo showing the power of the IndieWeb module for Drupal 8 in combination with Indigenous, an Android feed reader and publishing application.
