Hello and welcome to another edition of This Month 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 monthly summary of Solid progress.

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



In light of the COVID-19 pandemic Solid Events are moving online for the foreseeable future.

The first online Solid World will be on the 2nd of April 2020 at 1600 CEST. Tune in for two Solid app presentations by the people behind the apps. Solid World is a great opportunity to connect to other Solid app developers.

If you have any questions for the presenters pop them in this thread.

From now on, there will be an online Solid Event every first Thursday of the month.If you had upcoming Solid Events planned reach out to the Solid Manager on info@solidproject.org to arrange moving the content online with Solid World. Are you interested in speaking about what you have been building on Solid? Reach out to the Solid Manager on info@solidproject.org to get a speaking slot at the next event.
