First European Web Platform Doc Sprint February 8+9 in Berlin

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.

After the first two events of this kind at Adobe in San Francisco and at Google in Mountain View the first ever european Doc Sprint is taking off on February 8 and 9 2013 in Berlin.

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:

SUPERMARKT Berlin
Brunnenstr. 64, 13355 Berlin
Subway U8 “Voltastraße”
http://www.supermarkt-berlin.net/

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”.

Blue Beanie Day is coming – get your Beanie on!

The sixth international “Blue Beanie Day” will be celebrated as early as November 30, 2012! BBD is an ongoing tradition based on the blue beanie Jeffrey Zeldman wore on the cover of his 2003 “Designing With Web Standards” book. Join the celebration and post a picture of yourself wearing a blue beanie to the BBD Flickr pool or just post it on Twitter.

Get your beanie on!

Let’s get you guys prepped to celebrate and show your support for Web Standards, let’s get you some blue beanies! Post a comment to this article and let me know why YOU support Web Standards. And do it fast, so I can mail out a blue beanie like the one in the picture to you in time for #BBD12!

Blue beanies are shipped while stocks last. Copy & paste your comment along with your shipping adress in an E-Mail to bbd@klick-ass.com. And if an international shipping should not make it in time, Jeffrey Zeldman has a solution for that.

The Modern Web Needs Modern Tools! Create The Web London

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.

Stop reading – check out the video! There is also a german version available. More information on Edge Tools & Services and Adobe & HTML on html.adobe.com and at a Create The Web Tourstop in your neighborhood.
