I wrote last January that W3C was honoured through several nominations in the 2014 Net Awards, which celebrate the best in Web design and development; the best new talent, trends and technologies, and new projects that are shaping the next generation Web.
We are thrilled to share that Web Components won the Best New Web Technology 2014 net Award!
We were represented today at the ceremony held at The Grand Connaught Rooms of Covent Garden in London, by Dan Appelquist, co-chair of our Technical Advisory Group, who accepted the award. Here’s a tweet and snap, courtesy of Dan:
