This month der.hans will present "ActivityPub: Decentralized Social Networking" for us.
ActivityPub is a decentralized social networking protocol for allowing various services to interact.
For instance, a long form blog engine can use an external microblogging service for comments.
ActivityPub is based on the ActivityStream 2.0 data format. It provides client to server APIs and server to server APIs for server to server federating.
Attendees will learn about:
- Why decentralized social networking is useful
- The history of ActivityPub
- The history of decentralized social networking
