Test the Web Forward Seattle
The Internet Explorer Developer Relations and the Adobe Web Platform teams are hosting a Test The Web Forward event in Seattle, Sunday January 26, 2014.
The focus of this event is on learning, hacking, and writing tests for W3C specifications. During the event, experts will teach you about W3C specs & W3C testing and will guide you as you help make the Web a better, more interoperable place. Better tests for a better Web!
Test the Web Forward brings you closer to the very specifications that you use to craft web experiences and has you discover how you can shape the future of the web.
Over the course of the Test the Web Forward event, not only will you learn to understand how to read specifications and understand the state of support among different browsers, you will learn how to write tests that will help browsers make implementations of these features consistent. Experts will be on hand to help you write tests for CSS and other features as well as guide you through filing bug reports. You will learn new web features and good practices that would be useful in projects you contribute to in the future!
We are looking forward to a more interoperable web with your support!
