  • Federated and Free - distributed and decentralized application architectures
  • Time: Tuesday @ 2:30pm | Room E-133

Centralized social networks (FB, Google+, and twitter) provide a common location for folks gather, helping you to make connections and to share valuable experiences while online. But, who can you trust to store your data securely?

Catch a glimpse of what future social networks may look like, as we explore open alternatives to major social networks, and review the underlying architecture of new federated network applications, hosted w/Linux. By the end of this talk you should be able to launch your own federated social network hub.
