WebPlatform.org is an open community of developers building resources for a better web, regardless of brand, browser or platform. Anyone can contribute and each person who does makes it stronger. WebPlatform.org is convened by the W3C and is made possible through the support of the Web Platform Stewards. You did not hear about WebPlatform.org yet? Watch this short introductionary movie:
WebPlatform.org is a Wiki, and as such it is defined by actual and comprehensive content. Doc Sprints exist to continuosly build up and extend the documentation. At these Hackathon-style events an introduction to the mechanics of the Wiki as well as a lot of inspiration and starting points to begin your contribution are provided.
Experienced experts from both the Web Platform Stewards as well as the contributing community are on location to provide guidance. Your attendance will not only mean a lot of fun and serve the greater good – we will also serve you with drinks and food, there is a nice party and giveaways, and definetely enough time to network with other attendants.
The precise location will be selected based on the number of registrations mid of January – we want to provide an ideal setting and definetely get in everybody that is interested to attend. Update Jan 15, 2013: I’ve found a location that I think could not be better for hosting our Doc Sprint:
Please help to communicate the event across your channels to ensure everybody is aware and has a chance to register.
You want to run your own Doc Sprint?
Much appreciated! Everything you need to run a Doc Sprint in your own community will be provided at the Berlin event. Please select the respective ticket category when registering, so we can identify you and provide enough “starter packs”.
Well known mobilecamp Hamburg is organizing the Event, everbody who attended #mchh12 knows, these guys know how to do a proper event.
So what is this about?
S&F and e-net are going to give inspirational sneak peeks into current, webstandards based projects. I am going to talk about Adobes activities in terms of Webstandards, Test the Web Forward and WebPlatform.org and will introduce you to our Edge Tools & Services, including a detailled look on Edge Reflow and Inspect. Simon will rock CreateJS and Edge Animate and Harish is going to talk about PhoneGap/Build as well as Brackets, and how to contribute to Brackets and Open Standards.
We are going to wrap it up over free drinks and networking from around 6pm. Matching the time (and weather) of the year, the event is taking place in Hamburgs super-cozy “Die 2te Heimat”. And sold out in a matter of hours yesterday!
Oh boy… so what’s this article for? There are rumors on additional Tickets to be announced this weekend! It’s unclear when exactly, but it could pay off to follow @mobilecampHH on Twitter. Or you rely on my retweet (what I do not recommend).
Pretty sure a lot of you guys didn’t miss the news, but there is a ton of reasons to emphasize on the recently announced Edge Tools & Services. I mean I’ve been walking around with that knowledge for a while, so I am really happy we finally lifted the secret and introduced a new set of awesome tools to the world!
To provide a first hand experience on the new stuff Adobe recently kicked off the #CreateTheWeb Tour. We’ve been visiting the first stop of this series of events around the globe this week in London. About 400 people took a measure on Adobes contribution in terms of open web standards and modern tools for the web, and some of them shared their impressions with us.
