Social Base API: let's get federated and take our friends with us wherever we go
At Aral Balkan's DrupalCon keynote he spoke about Experience Driven Open Source and the need to be able to choose who stores are data for us.
Online friending / following basically boils down to categorizing email addresses (the primary key of identity). We want to be able to categorize identities anywhere and take them with us.
Currently Facebook will not let you bring your data to a startup it doesn't like. The only organisation that implements Facebook's APIs is Facebook. You can't decide who you want to store this data for you.
So I'm going to design a REST API and make a Drupal 8 install profile as a reference implementation. Users will be able to choose where they want their Social Base to be and any website will be able to connect to it. This will empower users.
The session will describe how the system works, have a live demo and Q&A.
