Web Standards Conferences

Monday 4 October, 2004 ( 9:57AM GMT)

By all accounts, it sounds like the Web Essentials conference in Sydney was quite phenomenal.

With over 200 people attending and now talking about it all over the place with completely justified smugness, presentations from web standards supergurus such as Zen Man, Captain Accessibility and Dr. Stop (just take a look at the amazing detail in these slides!) seem to have made for an exciting and informative couple of days that have really highlighted the increasing appetite for, and awareness of the importance of, web standards and accessibility issues.

Web standards are taking over the world. Wouldn't it be great if there were a web standards conference for those of us on the other side of the planet...

There will be a web standards conference in the UK

Here's a teaser for you...

Next year there will be a web standards and accessibility conference in the UK. I know that a lot of organising has gone into the event already and I think you can expect to hear more about it the New Year when the conference is "officially" announced and open for registration. Can't say much more until then...

Hmm I think I might pop along to that, do you know what part of the year it will be happening?

If I can afford It I'd love to go. Even if I was in Sydney I'm not sure I would have been able to afford it.

Yay. This sounds very interesting. The UK is a lot closer (=cheaper) for us Europeans. And you don't have to spend 24 hours on a plane to get there. Cool.

Yes! This is great. Australia was a surprise when America are obviously leading the world when it comes to web design. And now to have a conference here! Great! Count me in.

I believe that WWW2006 will be in Edinburgh. Apparently WWW2004 in New york was rather good.
