Hello and welcome to another edition of This Week in Solid!

Solid is a set of open specifications, built on existing open standards, that describes how to build applications in such a way that users can conveniently switch between data storage providers and application providers and take the data generated along.

This is a weekly summary of Solid progress.

Want something mentioned? Contact the Solid Manager at info@solidproject.org. This Week in Solid is openly developed on GitHub. If you find any errors in this week’s issue please submit a pull request.

Want to get involved? Contributions are welcome.

Every Thursday there is an hour-long public call where newcomers can introduce themselves, anyone can ask general questions about Solid, and we recap the weeks’ works on Solid.

Tune in at this line:

  • on the 2nd January 2020 at 16:00.
