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

If you are familiar with This Week in Solid click here to go directly to the newest information .

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.
