A very serious portrait of Doug

Doug Schepers

Web Standards Specialist

W3C Team Contact for the SVG, WebApps, and Web Events Working Groups

I'm a Web application developer with a passion for open Web standards, especially SVG. Over the past decade, I've worked in various startups, and helped found and run a small consulting company specializing in SVG Web apps. My mission at W3C is making it easier for people to make stunning Web content. I joined the W3C Team in June 2007. I edit specs, create and administer tests, chair and participate in teleconferences, read lots of technical and semi-technical stuff (specs, email, blogs, IRC logs), and try to find time to still code.

I also go out of my way to find new things that W3C should be doing, but isn't yet, and make that a reality. If you are involved in something that needs W3C's attention, feel free to contact me... I can't make any guarantees, but I can try to connect you to the right people.

I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA. I maintain a sporadic blog, called Reinventing Fire. I hang out on IRC under the handle "shepazu"; this is the Japanese transcription of my surname, pronounced "ʃepaz" (or, more humorously "shepazoo"). You can follow me on Twitter with @shepazu, and I also tweet for the SVG Working Group as @svgwg, and for the Web Events WG as @w3cwebevents. You can contact me at emailschepers@w3.org
