Web Standards: Hot off the Press

A session at London Web Standards W3 Trends

Monday 18th November, 2013

8:00pm to 8:40pm (GMT)

The Web is currently in a process of upheaval unknown since its inception nearly 20 years ago. Among the challenges we are currently facing are the rise of mobile platforms and accompanying changes in the way people are finding, interacting with and producing services and content on the Internet; the increasing maturity of HTML5 which has been produced and developed under a new model between W3C and the WhatWG; the maturity of Web applications and the rise in importance of JavaScript in the Web platform and the increasing maturity and complexity of video, 2d and 3d graphics and peer to peer communications as first class citizens of the Web. The Web is under existential threat from native mobile application development approaches and at the same time there has never been a time of greater innovation and energy in the development of the Web technologies and standards. The W3C “TPAC” (multi-group meeting and plenary session) has run in Shenzhen, China on the week of November 11th. I’ll be offering some overview of what’s happening in the W3C around these areas and more, what news has come out of TPAC and other recent standards meetings, what it’s likely to mean for the future of the Web and how you can get involved in the discussion on moving the Web forward.
