Test the Web Forward

San Francisco, CA
Test the Web Forward on June 15th & 16th in San Francisco, CA
The goal of the Move the Web Forward initiative is to get you more involved in contributing to the web platform. Adobe is organizing a hackathon that will help you get there! Representatives from W3C, Google, Mozilla & Microsoft will be on hand to guide you.
During the Test the Web Forward hackathon, you will discover new web features and 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 & SVG 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!
More details coming soon, but here are some of the features we will focus on learning and testing:
If you'd like a primer on W3C test writing before the event, a tutorial is posted here:
