The W3C TAG (Technical Architecture Group) is in charge of coordinating cross-technology architecture and the principles of web architecture at the World Wide Web Consortium – in other words, it’s kind of a technical steering group for web standards.
The group had a great developer meet-up on the evening of the 21st of May at Innovation House. Format for the day was an mini-unconference, kicking off at 18:30 with some lightning talks. Lightning speakers:
• Hjalmar Gislason, Founder & CEO, GRID – Spreadsheets are Programs
• Alice Boxhall, Google and W3C TAG – Accessibility Object Model
• Guðmundur Már Gunnarsson, Vivaldi – Lost in navigation
• Árni Hermann, Avo – Human Accessible Developer Tools
Topics discussed in groups after lighting talks (break outs) included Content Editable, spatial navigation, Semantics, webvtt, and scroll snapping.
Vivaldi had the pleasure of hosting students from Tvíund, the student society for Computer Science students from Reykjavík University.
These „Science trips“ are quite common among university students in Iceland (vísindaferðir in Icelandic). Science Trip – is when a group visits an organization or place of interest. This time it was Vivaldi. The students learned about Vivaldi browser and could talk to the Vivaldi team in a relaxed setting.
