On my way back from #w3ctpac. This is an amazing community that I have been involved with since 2001, and continues to evolve and to work at the forefront of web technology. I'm very glad to have helped to sponsor some attendees and to have brought many TPAC newbies to join in.🕸️

The Web Design & Development Bundle from O'Reilly has been the most popular bundle this month by far!!
It's still available for another week, so take your time in deciding if you want it or not.
For people involved in the activities of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), in Working Groups or Community Groups, and people who follow the work of the W3C. Run on a volunteer basis by Sandro Hawke and others, NOT the W3C systems team, and NOT supported by W3C. Uses the W3C Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. A place to talk online about the things you would talk about in a meeting, or at a meal with your group. We plan to have a relay-bot soon, so don't feel like you need an account here to be a member of this online community. Please post things you think the W3C community might find interesting!
