How to organize

How to organize an IndieWebCamp.

Consider first organizing a Homebrew Website Club meetup

Before

To organize an IndieWebCamp, you need:

  • 2-4 organizers - in practice that's worked best.
    • only 1 organizer means lots gets dropped on the floor.
    • 2 is the minimum viable: 1 for venue stuffs, 1 for virtual stuffs
    • 4 is what 2011 had
    • More than 4 hasn't happened in practice.
  • divide up key organizing responsbilities (venue, sponsors, food, tables/chairs, volunteers)
  • Venue with network access
  • Sponsors for food
  • Create a wiki page for it, including subpages, track venue capacity, waitlist if necessary

During

When actually doing the IndieWebCamp, you need to at least do:

  • venue tables/chairs/projectors/whiteboards/session grid setup
  • food/snack/coffee delivery (or bring in)
  • do the Introductions session
  • organize sync-up for lunches/dinners/coffee
  • take photos
  • run the demo session
  • organize collaborative cleanup and return venue to a cleaner state than when you showed up

After

After (or during if you can keep up)

  • upload & post photos on the wiki
  • make sure session Etherpads are captured into session notes archives pages on the wiki
  • apply information learned from sessions to topical pages on the wiki
