Test the Web Forward - August Newsletter 

With one big event finished and another one already in the works, it's been another busy month. We're excited to give you this update and let you know of all the new ways YOU can join the movement and help Make a Better Web.

Welcome New Subscribers!

First, a very warm welcome to all of our new subscribers from Shanghai! We're happy to have you join our ever-growing Test the Web Forward community and we're blown away by the fantastic success of your event.

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. RSVP on Meetup.com.

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 directly or if you'd like to start a group discussion, please use our new TestTWF event planning mailing list - see more info on this new list below.

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: public-testtwf-planning@w3.org. 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.

Get Involved

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 started.

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 public-testtwf-planning@w3.org.

Let's keep Making the Web a Better Place!
