We'll do a quick overview of how camp works and what to expect. We'll provide a walk through of all the common technologies and some of the community cultural norms around using them so that when camp starts on Saturday morning, you'll feel more comfortable and be prepared and ready to go to have two fun and productive days of improving your website.

Users of all levels of ability are encouraged to attend this session. Bring all your camp-related questions and we'll do our best to answer them.

OK   and , I have an official announcement.

John @whiskeydragon1 and I are getting married on June 19 2021.

There’ll be something virtual for those who can’t make it, and we’re still trying to figure out accessible wedding invitations because there is no way I am having a wedding that some of my friends can’t participate in.

We’re in the initial stages of planning, so we don’t have every detail worked out yet. But I am so happy and excited.

Best wishes Amanda! That’s great news!

RSVPed Attending microformats2 issues resolution session

Sat 9:30am - 12:00pm (America/Los_Angeles)

Designed for humans first and machines second, microformats are a set of simple, open data formats built upon existing and widely adopted standards.
Let's discuss how we can close out some outstanding microformats2 issues. See: https://indieweb.org/2020/Pop-ups/Microformats#Agenda for links to sets of issues to consider, optionally add your own issues to those sets as well. This is an intermediate session, with a prerequisite of basic knowledge of HTML and microformats. Experience with publishing and/or parsing is a plus. All are welcome.
Finishing up my slides today for a presentation about IndieWeb to the WordPress Santa Clarita Valley Meetup on Saturday morning. Everyone is welcome!

It’s not a necessary prerequisite for my talk, but I’ll try to pick up where Tantek Çelik (@t) left off in his invited talk right before the State of the Word at WordCamp US 2019.

Sponsored by the Healthcare Affinity & Johns Hopkins Carey Business School

At a time when the nation is looking to the healthcare industry for leadership and service, the pandemic has led to a significant impact on the U.S. healthcare job market. Historically, the healthcare industry has been relatively immune from recessions. However, as services have been cut, income streams have been lost. Join us as our panel of speakers discuss the economic impacts of the pandemic on the healthcare industry. This event will be presented on Zoom.

RSVPed Attending Black Every Day: A Focus on Policy and Policing

Sponsored by the Hopkins in Law Affinity

Tune in on Tuesday, August 25 at Noon EDT.

As the United States examines the ways in which existing criminal justice and policing policies at the local, state, and federal levels affect Black Americans and communities of color, many of us are left wondering about the role of our legislators. Following nearly a week of civil unrest following the death of George Floyd, Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Chairman William C. Smith, Jr. initiated legislation to address officer training, use of force, militarization, prosecutorial intervention, liability caps, the disclosure of personnel records, and The Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights. During this hour, engage with our panelists as they discuss Sen. Smith’s proposed legislation and the impact of George Floyd’s death as it relates to police, policy, and politics in Maryland and beyond.

RSVPed Attending How Legal Decisions and Policy Making Impact Reproductive Rights in 2020 and Beyond: A Panel Discussion

Sponsored by the Hopkins Alumni in Law, Women of Hopkins, & Healthcare Affinities

Polls show that the majority of Americans believe that birth control is a basic part of women’s health care and an important public investment. Young people have more opportunities to be mentally and physically healthy when they have control over when and under what circumstances they get pregnant and have a child. Join our panel of experts for a discussion about birth control access, federal and state policies, and case law. This panel will be presented on Zoom.

RSVPed Attending Hey Pressto! Conference 2020

A WordPress and ClassicPress conference which happens only on Twitter

Hello, we are Hey Pressto! Hey Pressto! is a ClassicPress and WordPress conference which happens only on Twitter.

#HeyPresstoConf2020 will happen on Thursday September 24, see more details about the schedule.

What does that mean? Well, it’s like a conference but presentations are a series of 15 Tweets, one per minute with the conference hashtag, in a scheduled time slot. You can add images, gifs, videos, links to your tweets to add more depth. The conference hashtag, numbering the tweets in a presentation, and threading them, all help the audience follow along. People viewing a presentation can interact by liking the tweets, retweeting them and commenting on the presentation, which builds engagement, creates question and answer threads, starts discussion and stimulates ideas. We will turn all presentations into moments so that they will remain easy to follow for as long as the presenters wish to keep their tweets available.
