When I first heard about beyond tellerrand a few years ago, it seemed like an event that was not only well-run, but well-loved by those who have attended. Every time I hear about it, I hear such great things that I knew that I wanted to be a part of it some day. I'm happy to report that it lived up to even my wildest expectations.
IndieWebCamp Düsseldorf 2016
I came across an article on Jeremy Keith’s website, in which he was writing about the IndieWebCamp in Nuremberg that recently took place and which I sadly had to miss out as I am completely swamped with work for the upcoming beyond tellerrand in Düsseldorf. From what I read everybody who was part of the camp in Nuremberg had a fabulous time. Not that I expected anything else, seeing that Joschi organised it and also made it possible that Aaron, Tantek and Jeremy could be part of it, but it makes me happy to see, that more and more people hear about and experience the idea behind the IndieWeb thinking.
Jeremy’s article also made me think that I should promote the IndieWebCamp in Düsseldorf once more. First of all because maybe not everybody was able to attend the one in Nuremberg and did not get notice of the one in Düsseldorf yet (please spread the word!), then also because so far 45 seats of 60 possible seats are taken, which means we still have space left and last but not least, because even if you did not have the chance to grab a ticket for beyond tellerrand itself and now are part of the huge waiting list, you are – of course – invited to attend the IndieWebCamp (or any other Side Event) also without having a btconf ticket.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, then you should definitely visit the IndieWebCamp Wiki to learn about the IndieWeb. Or, if you speak German, you can read the article “Unsre Daten. Unser Netz.” by Joschi or watch his talk “Deine Daten. Dein Netz.” from the Webkongress Erlangen.
