Fediverse, ActivityPub... and Drupal

Session details

You probably will have come across Mastodon, Pixelfed or Peertube. The Fediverse is a growing set of decentralized sites for distributing content. These are but a few of the platforms that already share content using ActivityPub as an open standard. First, this session will introduce the growing ecosystem that already exists.

We will then look at how these work technically: from discovery through to the W3C specifications. This will be a technical code (JSON and Linked Data!) explanation - but accessible to anyone with no experience.

Leveraging this growing ecosystem, organic and fixed standards to provide ActivityPub integration in Drupal therefore would offer a wide range of options for sites and applications to integrate with these platforms or to build other services. But what a complex thing to do... The session will finish by discussing the approach being taken to do so, where it is at the moment, and invites your input.
