W3C

Browsers and Authoring Tools

The web's usefulness and growth depends on its universality. We should be able to publish regardless of the software we use, the computer we have, the language we speak, whether we are wired or wireless, regardless of our sensory or interaction modes. We should be able to access the web from any kind of hardware that can connect to the Internet – stationary or mobile, small or large. W3C facilitates this listening and blending via international web standards. These standards ensure that all the crazy brilliance continues to improve a web that is open to us all.

Browsers, Media Players Header link

There are many types of tools that allow us to read the Web, including browsers, media players, publishing platforms, social networks, bots, aggregators, forums, and media-sharing sites.

    REST Fest

    Greenville, SC, USA

    The conference is primarily about Web architectural topics, but frequently includes (by the will of the participants presentations) topics such as blockchain, IoT/WoT, and re-decentralization.

    At REST Fest everyone speaks; everyone listens. The event begins with a hack day encouraging folks to work together to solve shared problems presented that day. The days that follow focus on hearing each other out, and giving everyone an opportunity to be heard.
