Test the Web Forward - October Newsletter
On this All Hallow's Eve, we're wearing our dinosaur costumes in
celebration of this day and of another great month-- and we'll be keeping them on until we get to China. October brought in many new members to to our community, hundreds of registrants for our next big event, a dazzling lineup of confirmed speakers (including Tim Berners-Lee!), and we officially became part of the W3C!
Welcome New Subscribers
Welcome to the many new subscribers we met at HTML5 DevConf in
San Francisco! We really enjoyed talking to so many passionate
web developers and telling you all about Test the Web Forward
and WebPlatform.org. Although not surprising, we were happy to
see that the goals of both of these initiatives resonated deeply
Upcoming TestTWF Events

We're less than two weeks away and registration for TestTWF Shenzhen
is now full! We're proud to have the W3C Beihang Site Manager, Angel
Li as our keynote speaker and very excited to have Tim Berners-Lee
add some parting words to wrap up the event. Additionally, we have
some excellent instructional talks lined up from Zhiaqiang Zhang and
Belem Zhang, both from Intel and both TestTWF alumni and experienced
W3C test writers.
If you're not able to attend in person, you're still very much
welcome to participate. Log on to GitHub (web-platform-tests,
css) and jump into #testing on irc.w3.org and find out where you
can start. We'll happily take pull requests from all over the world.
We'd especially like to see some past attendees from the Beijing,
Shanghai, and Tokyo events!

Test the Web Forward is Now Officially Part of the W3C
Last month, we told you about the new and improved
TestTheWebForward.org website , which was part of transition.
Now, we're pleased to announce that Test the Web Forward is now
officially part of the W3C. This a great development that simply
means that TestTWF now belongs to The Web, to the W3C members, and to
you. While we are actively working to build out this domain to
include more than documentation, the events will continue be driven
by the community. See below for how you can have one of your own.
Contribute to TestTheWebForward.org
With the relaunch of website, the W3C has provided a completely open
repository on GitHub to host its content. We invite all of you
to add your own, whether it be additional documentation, a blog
post, something on the TODO list, or just a bug fix -
we'll take your contribution.
Host your own Test the Web Forward event!
As you start your planning for 2014, consider holding an event of
your own - an intimate meetup focused on a topic suited to your
local community or user group, or partner with others to put on a
hackathon to crank out more tests over some beer and pizza.
Start the conversation at email@example.com. We
have kits to get you going and a growing network of TestTWF
experts around the world.
Let's keep Making the Web a Better Place!
