W3C Meetup in Lyon
4 November 2010

Follow #w3cdev on Twitter#w3cdev

W3C invites the public to gather for an evening of discussion, networking, and free food and drinks with the W3C community:

In addition to informal connections with W3C community members who are meeting that week in the conference center, the evening will feature speakers and demos on topics such as HTML5, SVG, augmented reality and the Web, W3C's new Unicorn validator, and more.

Participation in the meetup is open to anyone. We encourage Web designers and application designers (especially those who do not regularly participate in W3C) to join these discussions, and to meet and chat with other Web experts.

Please register online to help us better prepare the event logistics. This is a free event thanks to the support of the Grand Lyon.
