Web Standards Group Meeting

Posted in all posts, web by coleman yee on January 17, 2007

The first meeting of Singapore’s Web Standards Group finally happened today at Raffles Girls’ School.

Lucian started the meeting with an introductory presentation on web standards, while I did an introduction to web accessibility (“how to bluff your way through web accessibility”), and Nick Pan presented on the U21 Global site. Nick also showed a very nice representation of web standards by Natalie Jost called “web standards in a nutshell“.

A great session overall, finally getting to meet people I’ve encounted online for a long time (like Jimmy and Ivan Lian), and meeting other really cool people like Herryanto and Manar Hussain.

And those of you who were there, let me know what you think of my presentation!

Update:

I won’t be posting my PowerPoint slides, since they don’t work on their own (without a human presenter). But here’s one of the slides which the audience liked:

the good-evil continuum

And here’s the DVD example I stole from Douglas Bowman.

Here are some others who blogged about the event:

    Wish I was there… I heard that your presentation rawked. After seeing this, I told my students today how it’s important that we learn to be like Mother Theresa when we blogged, by providing lots of useful links where possible. 🙂
