Hi Folks!

The next ScotLUG will be on Thursday 30th May. This month we Neil McKillop
talking about ActivityPub!

Don't you miss the days when the web really was the world's greatest
decentralised network? Before everything got locked down into a handful of
walled gardens?

Enter ActivityPub! ActivityPub is a decentralised social networking
protocol based on the ActivityStreams 2.0 data format. ActivityPub is an
official W3C recommended standard published by the W3C Social Web Working
Group. It provides a client to server API for creating, updating and
deleting content, as well as a federated server to server API for
delivering notifications and subscribing to content.

Mastodon is one of the most feature rich implementations of ActivityPub -
join us for a quick demo of what it's capable of and what might come in the
near future!

Following the talk we will be adjourning to a local bar, this is likely to
be the Terrace Bar of the CCA. There is no requirement to purchase food or
drink if you don't want to.

Hope to see you all there.
