Test the Web Forward Sydney

There’s a really cool event coming up in Sydney, Australia on February 8th and 9th. It’s called Test the Web Forward.  It’s a hackathon of sorts for creating JavaScript tests to determine if a browser is supporting HTML/CSS/JS specs correctly. 

All you need is the ability to code HTML, CSS, JS and SVG. SVG if you aren’t familiar with the details, is just a type of XML, so don’t let that hold you back.  There will be SVG experts there to help as well.

It’s an awesome chance to:

  • Meet a few of the people that are intimately involved with HTML
  • Check out Google’s offices in Darling Harbor
  • Find out more about how a browser works from the makers

I highly recommend the event, if you’re in the area. To find out more check out Test the Web Forward.
