Homebrew Website Club - The Americas

January 5, 2022

One big HWC, for anyone in the Americas(or who is just available) who wants to dial in.

What's Homebrew Website Club?

Homebrew Website Club is a meetup for anyone interested in personal websites and a distributed web. Whether you’re a blogger, coder, designer, or just someone who wants to improve their presence on the web, this meetup is for you.

Join a community with like-minded interests. Bring friends that want a personal site, or are interested in a healthy, independent web!

What Are "Chat" and "Etherpad"?

If you have questions, ask away in the the IndieWeb chat channel, usable from a browser, IRC, Slack, or Matrix.

At each HWC, we take collaborative notes using Etherpad. This week's link is https://etherpad.indieweb.org/hwc-2022-01-05

Who's Running This Thing?

  • Host - TBA
  • Zoomer - David Shanske

Timing and Agenda

HWC almost always overruns its nominal 90-minute scheduling. You're free to stick around as long as the Zoom room is active.

Here's a typical agenda:

  • 5-10 minutes: Introductions, especially from first-timers
  • 1-2 minutes: Take a picture (you don't have to be in it)
  • 10-20 minutes: Demos of personal website breakthroughs
  • 5-10 minutes: Vote on topics for freeform discussion
  • Rest of the time: Share and discuss ideas from voting

RSVP (optional)

If your website supports it, post an indie RSVP. You can also log in with your website and click “I'm Going” below.

If none of that means anything to you, don't worry about it: just show up! The Zoom meeting link will appear shortly before the meeting time.
