Wednesday Plenary Day

On Wednesday, 8 November, we hold a "Plenary Day." As we did for TPAC2016, we organized most of the day as "camp-style" breakout sessions. We invite you to add to or comment on Breakout session ideas. The people at the meeting that day will build the Session Grid, drawing from ideas socialized in advance and new ideas proposed the day of the meeting.

  • Questions? See the FAQ.

Aggregated Summaries

MDN and W3C

This session introduced the recent evolution of MDN into a shared ownership portal for Web documentation. W3C is member of the Product Advisory Board tasked with setting the roadmap and identifying resources for further development of the portal. We reviewed a number of opportunities where standardization and documentation efforts could work better together: testing, explainers, synchronization or coordination of the various stages of development of specs and their docs - these will be brought to an upcoming meeting of the MDN PAB.
