IndieWebCamp is a 2-day creator camp focused on growing the independent web

2013/Guest List



IndieWebCamp 2013 takes place through in Portland, Oregon

Additional URLs:


personal identity

To add yourself to the guest list:

  1. Log in with your own domain!
  2. Add yourself to the #Creators section
  3. There is no step 3.

Using your Google/Facebook/Github or other silo URL as your identity is not indie enough!

If you're serious about the Indie Web, then you can demonstrate that by setting up your own domain.

creators only

Like 2011 & 2012, IndieWebCamp 2013 is for active creators only in order to focus the limited time we have on productive real world discussions and code/design/ux sharing that will help us move forward.

Being a creator means you must do one or more of:

  • code. create or contribute to indieweb open source projects
  • design. create or contribute to indieweb designs, graphic, layout, adaptive or otherwise.
  • ux. create wireframes or other indieweb user interface flows

As an indieweb creator, you must be using the things you create (code, design, ux) on your personal site.

As an indieweb camp creator, you must share at least some small part of what you create and run on your personal site.

Still not sure if you're an indieweb creator?

Check out the Creator wiki page.

apprentices to creators

Perhaps you don't have a personal site.

Perhaps you're a creator, but only for other people, and don't actively create things for your own site.

Maybe you're really excited about the IndieWeb and want to join it as soon as you can!

You can still attend IndieWebCamp as an apprentice to a creator.

A creator may bring an apprentice, and is completely responsible for them.

If you're not a creator, but want to be, or want to create and contribute to the indieweb but don't know where to start, team up with a creator, and ask them to add you.

In the meantime, be sure to get setup with your own personal identity so you can contribute to the wiki, and start learning what you can do to add your personal site to the indie web.
