Upcoming TestTWF Events
Sacramento HTML5 Meetup: September 17, 7PM PDT
Due to a last minute cancellation last month, we've rescheduled the
Sacto meetup for September 17, extending your opportunity to come meet
some of the TestTWF team and learn more about it. We'll be co-presenting
with Julee Burdekin of WebPlatform.org, who'll be letting you know
how you can also contribute to web platform docs.

Test the Web Forward @ TPAC, Shenzhen, China: November 9, 9AM-7PM CST
Now that we've wrapped up the Shanghai event, we've kicked off the
planning for our next event. Because we love China so much, we're
heading back! This time we'll be in Shenzhen and for the first time,
Test the Web Forward will be part of of the W3C's annual TPAC
conference. If you're a W3C working group member planning to be at
TPAC and you'd like to come and offer your expertise on your favorite
spec, please let us know! Contact Rebecca Hauck at rhauck @adobe.com.
If you're unable to attend TPAC but would like suggest specs or areas
that need tests, we'd also love your input. You can contact Rebecca

New TestTWF Mailing List
We're pulling back the curtain a little on our event planning process
and we're inviting all of you to participate. We've created a new public
mailing list for this purpose: email@example.com. If
you have ideas for events (especially to suggest areas or specs that
really need tests) or have questions about running your own, use this list to reach out.
Host your own Test the Web Forward event!
If you're a community leader, part of a web-related user group, or
belong to an organization that wants to Make the Web a Better Place,
consider hosting an event of your own or partnering with others in your
area to put one on. If you'd like to have a small meetup-style event or
we can point you in the right direction. A Meetup Kit is available
and you can contact Susan Parini at parini @adobe.com to get you
For assistance in planning larger events like the one we just had in
Shanghai, we'll be rolling out a full Event Kit very soon. If you're
interested in hosting, partnering, sponsoring, or participating in a
future event, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's keep Making the Web a Better Place!
