W3C Developer Meetup

Monday 6 November 2017, 18:00-22:00, Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport

W3C is pleased to launch the first ever W3C Developer meetup in San Francisco!

We invite the public and W3C members to gather for an evening of presentations, discussions and networking with the W3C community.

The meetup will cover topics matching closely the current needs and interests of developers. Presentations will include demonstrations and show the current browsers' implementations on: Progressive Web Apps, Virtual Reality, Web Payments, Security, and more. These are opportunities for developers to learn from and meet with the top notch engineers building the Web!

Participation in the meetup is open to anyone at no cost, but space is limited to approximately 300 people. Web designers and application developers in particular are encouraged to participate. Please register (see below)!


Registration is open until Sunday, 5 November 2017; we will close registration sooner if we reach capacity or re-open registration if we have more availability.
