- Photos from the Dev Day
The success of the World Wide Web depends on its developers. From Hypertext and Web Browsers to the APIs that extend the capabilities of the Web, developers have played a very important role in making the Web as ubiquitous as it is today. To celebrate this great driving force behind the Web, we are rebooting the Developers Day at the World Wide Web Conference.
The Developers Day will be forum for developers by developers where cutting edge Web technologies will be discussed. The program consists of a round of lightning talks followed by Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions where attendees will be able to get an in-depth look at the software presented in the form of a hands-on tutorial as well as a discussion of open challenges, next steps, and application areas.
We are soliciting submissions from developers who have interesting open-source software to showcase to the Web developer community. The program will have a special focus on implementations, methods, techniques, and how developers have solved practical problems on the Web. The software must be based on an implemented and tested system that pursues one or more innovative ideas in the interest areas of the conference.
