W3C DevRel – TPAC21 debrief

A group of people facing a whiteboard to schedule their breakout session using post-itsW3C’s 2021 annual conference (TPAC) concluded last month and we take the opportunity to debrief this successful virtual event through the lens of developer relations.

As input to the conference, several W3C groups produced videos and group updates about their work, which should help developers learning what new technologies are coming their way (incl. CSS container queries and new WebXR capabilities), or new ways W3C is trying to help developers adopt its technologies, through curated data for JS APIs & CSS or through lifting barriers to adoption as explored by the WebAuthn Adoption Community Group.

A highlight of TPAC is its unconference, a series of 1 hour sessions that any participant can propose and animate.

Among those, we wanted to highlight several initiatives particularly relevant to the developers and designers community:
