The #IndieWeb is a people-focused alternative to the “corporate web”.

 

Participants on Day 1 of IWC NYC2

Adafruit web team member Marty McGuire paid a visit to IndieWebCamp NYC2 to learn more about what it means to build a people-focused alternative to the “corporate web”.

I first learned about the IndieWeb community in summer of 2015 and was drawn to the IndieWeb principles of owning your own data (on your own domain), building things that you use yourself (a.k.a. “selfdogfooding“), and having many folks building lots of different tools that work together. I have spent the time since then occasionally checking in on new developments on their wiki and #indieweb IRC/slack chat.

Each IndieWebCamp includes a hack day where participants work on their own websites. Marty’s project was to embed an interactive 360 panoramic photo.

My project was to make it possible to post 360 photos (e.g. from the Ricoh Theta S) into my site in a way that folks can pan and zoom in their browser and on mobile. Thanks to Google’s VR View project, I was able to get this up and running very quickly, including support for mobile that allows looking around by moving the phone (with Cardboard support, even)! You can find my demo post here.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
