Scranton’s first Homebrew Website Club

February 1, 2017

Next Wednesday I’ll be hosting the first Scranton-based Homebrew Website Club at Condron Media‘s headquarters on Penn Avenue. There are other locations HWC will be happening on that day too. If you have your own site and I you care to work on it in anyway at all please do stop by.

Homebrew Website Club is not a typical meetup, like say a WordPress meetup, in that you stop by to learn a particular topic (although I have no doubt you will learn if you attend one). It is more a reoccurring time that is set aside to allow you to work on your personal web site. Perhaps you’ve been meaning to finish up a blog post that has been in draft for weeks, or you need to fix a theme issue, or you want to do something more complex – whatever it is, HWC is your opportunity to do that while sitting next to other people that are trying to do the same.

I’ll be using the this time, each meeting, to fit more Indieweb building blocks into my personal site. I’ve recently added Backfeed, POSSE, Webmention, and others. And I plan on continuing to tweak them to get them just the way I’d prefer. Also, I plan on pushing my code and work back out into the world through this blog, my Github account, and #indieweb on IRC.

So, if this is something you’re into. Drop by.

Nope, just a friend in Scranton who is dabbling in homebrewing. But not not dabbling in being very social I guess.

Btw, I’m still working out the kinks with POSSE… so here is a link to the original post

If it ever shifts the schedule from Wednesdays, let me know! That’s my teaching night at MU.

Then after clicking…realizing it has nothing to do with beer. I should take a class on using social better 😕

Is this a celebrity reference I do not know?

Sounds awesome… what time?
