Unhosted: freedom from the web’s monopolies – Jan-Christoph Borchardt
- Topic: Web applications usually come with storage attached to it – your users can not choose where your app stores their files, and you have to bother about providing data storage.
Technically speaking, we define a protocol stack consisting of CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing), WebFinger, OAuth and GET, PUT, DELETE – and work on its adoption through patching apps and storage providers. Check out http://unhosted.org for more info.
- Presenter: Jan-Christoph Borchardt is designer, user researcher, part-time coder and activist for free culture, free software, telecommunications & a free web. Just finished with his studies of information design, he improves the user experience of free & open source web applications.
Currently he is full-time web revolunteer as Design Dictator for http://unhosted.org and core contributor of http://owncloud.org which enables you to have web services under your control.
