Building a Brave New Web

A session at WordCamp San Francisco 2012

Saturday 4th August, 2012

2:50pm to 3:10pm (PST)

The Web is no longer a dusty bookshelf of documents. It needs to become a rich operating system that lets us tell stories, share our experiences, and which provides powerful functionality and services wherever and whenever we need them.

In this mobile-first world, platforms like WordPress and Facebook are uniquely positioned to help fulfill this promise. In this session, we’ll review the work that we’ve been doing with Automattic, the W3C, and the broader industry. We’ll discuss & demonstrate the WordPress Facebook plugin project. And we’ll explore how the WordPress community can help the Web as a whole rise to this collective challenge.
