The best way to get involved in Rebooting the Web of Trust is to attend a design workshop. Here’s the current status of our next event:

RWOT12, the next Rebooting the Web of Trust event, will occur in Los Angeles, California in Spring of 2023! We look forward to our first return to North America since RWOT7 in 2018! In the meantime, take a look at our RWOT11 repo for what went on at our September 2022 workshop in The Hague. Draft Documents contains our work from the workshop and Final Documents has the finished work to date.

We welcome a wide variety of people to our events, with the other thing needed being an interest in decentralized models of digital identity and information. Attendees include engineers and developers, but also people who are interested in these technologies but don’t have technical knowledge. We’ve had great white papers produced on both non-technical topics such as use cases and legal overviews and very technical topics such as the original specs that led to DIDs. They’ve all been crucial to the advancement of our community, so we hope you’ll be comfortable attending no matter your level of technical expertise; the important thing is an interest in our shared goals of independence and self-sovereignty in the digital world.

If you’re not yet ready to sign up for a workshop, then we invite you to email us and/or sign up for our email list.
