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

Solid is a standard that describes how to build data storage and applications in such a way that users can conveniently switch between data storage providers and application providers and take the data generated along. If you have a suggestion on how to improve this description you may be interested in joining the Explaining the Vision panel who are working on describing Solid in a Nutshell.

This is a weekly summary of Solid progress.

Want something mentioned? Contact the Solid Manager at info@solidproject.org or send a pull request. Want to get involved? Contributions are welcome.

This Week in Solid is openly developed on GitHub. If you find any errors in this week’s issue please submit a pull request.

Weekly Solid Call

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. This week was a general conversation about open source Solid servers. Next weeks call will be cancelled so the next call will be on the 17th October at 1000CEST on this line.
