Solid World is an opportunity to learn how various organizations, developers, and users are working together to build on Solid.

About this Event

This month we will be discussing the flexibility and user experience of Solid data. We will be learning how app developers ingest, transform, connect, enrich, and ultimately unlock the power of personal data in Solid.
