    Introducción a W3C y sus herramientas + taller "Test the Web Forward"

    by Antonio Olmo Titos

    Relevant technology area: Web Design and Applications.

    Abstract:
    La web no nació con Twitter, y ni siquiera con Myspace. Este año celebramos el 25º aniversario de la triple uve doble. Y durante las últimas dos décadas, el World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) ha sido el principal organismo responsable de impulsar su desarrollo. El catálogo de estándares y documentación que el W3C coordina y mantiene hace que hoy podamos mantener una videoconferencia, jugar en tiempo real y maquetar periódicos digitales en árabe... todo sin salir de un navegador. Y lo que es más importante: manteniendo principios de neutralidad tecnológica, estándares abiertos y el consenso de la comunidad. El W3C no tiene ánimo de lucro, y publica su trabajo gratis, y libre de patentes. Los últimos estándares (HTML5, WebSockets, WebRTC, shadow DOM, por nombrar algunos), la velocidad con que los navegadores los implementan, y los dispositivos ubicuos están creando un sustrato extremadamente fértil. Para un profesional, o para un estudiante, la web es una plataforma ideal: gratuita, abierta, colaborativa, bien documentada y rica en prestaciones. En esta charla se presentará el W3C desde la perspectiva de un ex-alumno de la ETSIIT que trabaja como programador web en su equipo de sistemas. Nos centraremos en HTML como pieza central, pero mencionaremos otras especificaciones que merece la pena conocer. Todo ese trabajo, por cierto, está abierto a la participación y los comentarios de cualquiera que desee contribuir. También se mostrará cómo aprovechar las herramientas, servicios y recursos que el W3C pone a disposición de profesionales y estudiantes. La charla se complementa con un hackatón específico sobre HTML5: se demostrarán los mecanismos de pruebas que están ayudando a que HTML5 esté listo para su publicación definitiva como estándar. Los participantes podrán escribir pruebas sobre la característica de HTML que más les interese, y ejecutarlas sobre su navegador favorito. Además, los resultados se subirán al repositorio central. Es una manera excelente de profundizar en áreas concretas de programación web, y de involucrarse de manera activa en la comunidad que dirige la evolución de la web.

    Abstract:

    Imagine an organization where everyone embraces accessibility — where they are committed to making the organization’s website and other ICT accessible to people with disabilities, where they appreciate the additional benefits of accessibility to all users and to the organization, where they approach accessible design as an exciting challenge, where they are proud of their accomplishments in accessibility. In this engaging session you’ll get a vision and practical guidance to help move your organization in that direction.

    You’ll learn how to:

    • Develop a customized business case for your organization.
    • Effectively use the carrots and sticks for motivating accessibility.

    Abstract:

    Get the Gist (No Experience Needed

    Have you ever wondered: “Is this web page accessible?” If you can use the Web, you can get a good start at an answer — no expertise required!

    Whereas web accessibility evaluation tools spit out complex results that require knowledge to interpret, the W3C resource “Easy Checks – A First Review of Web Accessibility” provides a different approach. It walks you through some basic accessibility evaluation with guidance for understanding what you are checking. Most people can complete these checks in about 10 minutes once they understand them. If you’re new to web accessibility, it will take some time to learn. From the session, you’ll:

    • Learn simple steps for getting started evaluating 12 aspects of web accessibility.
    • Understand some basic accessibility barriers and solutions.
    • Gain confidence in reporting web accessibility problems.

    This session provides a jump start to understanding and using Easy Checks so that you can start to answer: “Is this web page accessible?”.

    Abstract:
    The Web was conceived 26 years ago to solve a complex problem: how to allow communication between different research teams using different systems to run and document different experiments. Of course it has evolved enormously since then. HTML5 is just the centerpiece in a network of technologies that form a globally available operating system available on every connected device. It's interactive, it's powerful, it's fascinating and, at times, it's dangerous. And the Web isn't just about documents, images and videos. It's a web of data. Product data, government statistics, geographic data and more. A lot of this data is available for free – after all, so much of what is online is free – but all too often, you get what you pay for. In this talk, W3C Data Activity Lead, Phil Archer, will look at how Web technologies are being applied in areas like automotive, social Web, graphics and geospatial, and how the technologies and concepts that have made the Web so successful can be harnessed to build the Web of data.
