Matt Grabara

I am a developer at Scott Logic since 2020 with background in economics and data science. My interest in decentralised communication drove me to obtain an amateur radio licence and prepare others for Amateur Radio Foundation exam. In my off-screen time I like travelling, learning languages, acrobatics and hanging upside down otherwise during circus classes. Attempting a handstand since May 2022.
After the recent acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk, you may have heard someone mentioning Mastodon. Alongside other open source and decentralised social platforms, it is built on the top of ActivityPub specification. In this post I give an overview of ActivityPub, explain the idea of fediverse and share my personal experience as a participant.
