    API Screen Orientation API and Pointer Lock API Francesco Iovine giving kick start intros to novice users of WebPlatform org The Do what you want group led by Hans Christian Reinl focussed on general web concepts tutorials and beginners docs Six pages got revised and updated and two new pages were created Four pages received updates and still have open ends two others definitely need more work find all details at the group work document The CSS focus group led by Christian Schepp Schaefer identified the following pages as being imported from MDN or MSDN and reworked them according to the style guide Selectors last child before first letter first line Functions translate translateX translateY translate3d Properties zoom left right object fit transform font variant text shadow as well as the syntax page for important The group also went through every single CSS property and removed all prefixed example code just leaving the unprefixed CSS in there Annoyingly they found a lot of CSS property pages that had an empty CSS Object Model Property table cell or a wrong one like element style A few of those got corrected Also a dabblet bug was found on code webplatform org and fixed with the help of Renoir Boulanger Thanks to all the contributors and volunteers This successful Doc Sprint would not have been possible without the help of our community experts and our lovely volunteers Pascal Szewczyk Tomas Caspers Kenneth Shinabery Daniel Connerth Sven Wolfermann Aaron Gustafson David Kirstein and my partner in crime in organizing the event Marc Thiele Thank you all Want to run a Doc Sprint yourself Doc Sprints like this one are a fantastic opportunity to help push the web and its documentation forward In the same time and place you can meet and exchange with like minded folks learn get inspired and also have a nice BBQ and party So why not run your own Doc Sprint We created a document for you in case you d like to create the next WPDS the Doc Sprint in a Box Posted in Events Tagged doc sprint A New Home Page Apr 09 2014 by Jen Simmons You may have noticed we recently launched a new homepage for www webplatform org The recently retired homepage was doing its job but looking at it more closely we realized that wanted to provide users with much more information right from the first introduction The new home page starts with telling the story of the project as directly as possible What is this project Who is involved Why is this a great idea What s unique to this set of web documentation We made this page 100 responsive it resizes to fit any size screen And we moved the video so that you can play it right from this page instead of having to click and wait for a lightbox to load before being able to watch The Docs List We added a section listing the major sections of the Docs showing which ones are ready to use which ones are being worked on and what ideas we have planned for the future We hope this will make it easier for people to understand the state of the project figure out where to jump in and help and most of all what documentation is already on the site ready to use This list is a work in progress The plan is to continuously update it with new links and move links from column to column as the status of things change People should be able to come to this list to quickly see exactly what s on the site As I ve gotten involved with Web Platform Docs and dug into researching what s going on I ve found that there s a lot of great stuff going on that people just don t know about It s my goal to make it much easier to find such treasures and this section is a start The lower part of the page is dedicated to explaining exactly how to get involved Rather than asking people to read many pages in the Editor s Guide we wanted to put the most important information right up front where it s easy to find and follow I ll be overhauling the Editor s Guide likely renaming it Contributor s Guide next to reflect what I ve discovered about how to get involved and to better match the message that s now on the home page Since Web Platform Docs is relying heavily on the contributions of volunteers to update and improve the documents that have been imported from MSDN we need people to be able to join the effort with as little friction or confusion as possible A new platform Lastly we also changed the technology that s driving this and other pages on the www webplatform org domain Most of the Web Platform website is handled by MediaWiki hosted at docs webplatform org while this blog is driven by WordPress at blog webplatform org The home page along with several other static HTML pages are hosted separately at www webplatform org These were hand coded pages that used a bit of php includes to handle the header and footer We revisited this set up when we were getting ready to launch the new home page design and decided to implement a static site generator While there are many Jekyll perhaps being the most popular the team wanted to use something built on Node js since Node js is JavaScript and JavaScript is part of the web platform Renoir Boulanger researched and tested quite a few node js based static site generators and settled on DocPad We wanted something that would create a file structure that would be easy for anyone to understand that way the source files could be shared in a new public GitHub repo where anyone could submit a pull request with changes We want everyone involved with the Web Platform project to have an easy way to submit suggestions for updating the content on the homepage and other pages This is just one more step in improving the Web Platform project We will keep improving both the design and content of this homepage bit by bit Let us know if you have any suggestions or ideas for how to keep improving things Posted in Site News Fluent Doc Sprint is next week Mar 04 2014 by Julee We have already blogged about the upcoming Doc Sprint at Fluent 2014 but I ve compiled a few details in case you have questions You can also get a sense of what happens by reading about past doc sprints by checking out our previous posts First of all the Fluent conference is hosting the Doc Sprint providing the space food But you don t have to go to the Fluent conference to attend the Doc Sprint The Doc Sprint is open to the public That means anyone can attend Yep that means YOU are invited So what will happen when you come The agenda will go something like this MORNING Welcome Intro to WebPlatform org docs How to contribute Doc Sprint LUNCH yes free food Working talking sharing ideas AFTERNOON Special guests Doug Schepers W3C Jen Simmons Jen Simmons Design and maybe a surprise or two More Doc Sprint Swag Wrap up No experience is necessary Seriously That means you don t have to be an expert you need not know how to edit wiki markup or be familiar with any build tools It s a good idea to be there at the beginning just so you get the information about getting started contributing We ll go over everything you need to know Bear in mind that you can come for just part of the day too We ll be in Salon 5 at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis 780 Mission Street San Francisco CA You will need your own laptop and power and power adaptors For any other questions go ahead and email the webplatform public list And do sign up at Eventbrite to get the latest information and special treatment See you there Posted in Events WPW Week 3 What type of contributor are you Feb 26 2014 by Julee When I first edited a webplatform org page I was very nervous I have experience I won t mention the number of years with both technical content and editing So I expected to come to webplatform org and dig into the content and change it easily That wasn t my experience Whether it s because of the MediaWiki markup or the expert eyes on the content or the instability of the site I m not sure but I was intimidated It didn t help that just about the first contribution I made after consulting with a couple of folks was reversed by someone halfway around the world in the middle of my night I d consider myself a Nervous Nelly as they say Or after that first experience I d call that contributor Tim Idreget Yes that was me timidly pushing ahead only to regret doing so But that s ridiculous No one cared I made an edit someone thought it wasn t correct and changed it back Someone just as unfamiliar with the site as I was Someone who wasn t privy to our discussion around the table Someone who was trying to get through the tasks he wanted to do But what to do Change it back to my way Play tug o war Leave it quietly and walk away What to do Ask Shepazu And of course that was the best because he said and I m not quoting here but something to the effect of This indicates that one of you doesn t understand what the other is doing Send a query and get it cleared up And I did and it did But that brings me to another type of contributor Let s call him Rip Rip Enburn His sense of self proceeds himself He s not concerned with the page s history who edited this when and exactly what did they do who cares He s on a roll taking no prisoners going for speed and all that Fortunately I haven t come across any of these on webplatform org But they re out there As an innocent lamb if some of your content has been ripped to shreds follow up Make sure you know why Get a second opinion Rip may in fact not be right or have even noticed that he clobbered something or someone along the way OK I have to say it Although they will not be given a stage name there s another contributor that is hard to take It s the armchair contributor Named after the armchair philosopher they observe they postulate they provide commentary but they don t edit the actual page There s an interesting discussion on wikipedia org about armchair philosophy under the heading Armchair theorizing A more visceral definition can be found in the Urban Dictionary And to tell you the truth I ve been one of these myself It s so much easier to lie in wait for someone else to make a contribution and contribute suggestions on how they contributed I have been to community sites and said this is really bad or just bad and even left a comment to that effect But did I stick around to offer a solution or take it to a resolution At any rate what I want to be what I want for you to be is a confident contributor like Connie Fident She has a lot of hands because she can work so creatively and smoothly always knowing what to contribute and how within just the right amount of time But really the only way we re going to get there is to actually edit the pages themselves and share our experiences and help each other improve and then edit the pages themselves Whatever type of contributor you are please do join us this week as we continue to improve the Array object and its properties function and methods We ve broken out some of the tasks involved with editing the basic facts So let us know if that takes off the edge to editing a page Or let us know what type of contributor you are and how we can improve the experience for you Don t be shy just edit a page and let us know how it went by emailing the public list Persons depicted herein are fictional and do not represent any real persons living or dead except for Shepazu Posted in Web Platform Wednesday Fluent 2014 Doc Sprint You re invited too Feb 21 2014 by Julee A group of us working on WebPlatform Docs will be hosting a Doc Sprint at Fluent 2014 in San Francisco on March 11th O

contributors standards groups and more When we get the content we review it improve it and add that little something more For example right now we re concentrating on JavaScript language reference content A doc sprint is a period of concentrated effort by a number of people to improve that content or really any part of the site that you d like to work on It s like a hackathon for documentation No experience is necessary At a doc sprint beginners can learn how to get started We have some basic tasks that anyone can do with support And we ll be there to support all contributors Folks with more experience can make great progress on deeper tasks We ll all collaborate on the site extending it and building the content itself Bugs get fixed on the spot We do usability testing We eat and drink and Well doc sprints are great places to geek out make new friends and meet old ones To get a sense of past doc sprints check out our previous posts Just go to Eventbrite to sign up We look forward to seeing you there Posted in Events Tagged Doc Sprints WPW Week 1 Array Feb 12 2014 by Julee Here we are at Web Platform Wednesdays Week 1 for the JavaScript language reference There s a reason why organizations and individuals have come together to document the web platform here The content can be used and reused anywhere without complex terms What you contribute is for everyone s use It s sort of documentation neutrality So while this may appear to be just another JavaScript reference that we re embarking on it really is different We ve got the scaffolding down thanks to Microsoft but let s add some magic that special something that comes from giving a gift unconditionally We re starting with Array this week focusing on the object itself the constructor and those few properties that make Array a special object such as length and isArray When working with basic reference content we have the opportunity to add some wise words such as unless there s a reason not to create an array using literal notation And let s up the ante with examples What kinds of code helps you when you re learning a new feature What did you wish you knew back way back when you were starting with JavaScript There s plenty to do even if you re not a JavaScript expert check the values against those in the spec make sure all of the content from the MSDN page were imported or find great blog posts and articles Join us this week as we get the facts down provide clear information about the language and share the magic Check out the language elements and how the activities break down then let us know what you want to do by emailing the public list Posted in Community Content JavaScript Web Platform Wednesday Web Platform Wednesdays meet JavaScript Feb 07 2014 by Julee You ve been waiting for a space to share your most treasured thoughts on JavaScript Well the wait is over We re ready for the second content project on webplatform org The JavaScript reference pages that Microsoft donated have been imported That means we re ready to make them ours So we ll start up Web Platform Wednesdays again There are about 350 language parts to review and improve Next week we ll have a list of JavaScript language elements that folks can add their wisdom to We ll publish the lists on Tuesday evenings PST so that folks in Europe can start their Wednesdays with a fresh list Email the public list public webplatform w3 org with the pages you want to work on and what you re taking on basic facts explanations samples 3rd party links If you re interested in working on something not listed no problem Just let us know And if you re particularly talented we could use your help constructing what we call a gold standard page an example that all other contributors can reference to see what we consider a great page If you re available now to work on a part of the gold standard just email the public list public webplatform w3 org to sign up We ll be live on the IRC channel webplatform to help out on Wednesdays we re actually there a lot of the time so join the channel and don t be shy See you next week Posted in Community Content JavaScript Web Platform

small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world indeed it s the only thing that ever has Margaret Mead Also never doubt that a small group can get a lot done at a doc sprint and the group at the Amsterdam doc sprint however small accomplished a lot of work on Web Platform Docs moved the web forward and changed the world A small group however does have trouble polishing off a huge chocolatey birthday cake and we really could have done with more attendance on that front Indeed the cake was not only not a lie it was delicious Careful with the knife Doug The cake the catering and the venue The Hub co working space were all orchestrated by our host Paul Verbeek Paul also coordinated with the Fronteers organization which helped publicize the doc sprint as it followed the Fronteers 2013 developer conference Everything came off with great panache Thanks Paul The big story coming out this doc sprint is that we finished some 53 CSS properties to bring the total number of CSS properties completed to within twenty of our goal for the project Some of the work on those 53 properties was already done in other doc sprints and by other contributors so we mostly reviewed and put the finishing touches on these properties and we were able to move very quickly through the list There are opportunities for us to add value to the web apart from great documentation In documenting the new auto value of the outline style property we discovered that the specification did not describe exactly how the auto value should work as a standard the spec leaves it up to the user agent and when we tested it in several browsers on several systems we were unable to discern a common pattern This struck us as falling short so we dispatched a missive to the CSS working group recommending that the behavior of the auto value be more clearly defined We re waiting to hear back from them But the point is we took the opportunity to not only document the auto value but to help shape its specification and participate directly in building the web Some prefer to sprint in their socks Many of the participants here in Amsterdam have also attended one or both of the other European doc sprints Rodney Rehm Vivienne van Velzen and Francesco Iovine veterans of the Berlin and Zurich doc sprints made a mountain of edits to the CSS properties and HTML attributes documentation Is it time for cake yet We also signed up several new members one of whom Tom Schuller won the raffle prize a Chromebook provided by Google Show up

    what needed further work some ran into issues in creating content but most just hit the edit button and just went for it The HTML elements were a little more uneven Some of the pages have received a great deal of love and looked bellisimo We gave some other pages a little extra TLC in order to make them as beautiful as that first set And there were times when working on some of the elements required working on some attribute pages as well so we did that too thanks apexskier A big shout out to all who attended and took part in the doc sprint This was a ridiculously hard working group of contributors I practically had to beg everyone to break for lunch When all was said and done these hard working souls reviewed edited created and curated 201 topics by the end of the day an astounding amount We all were rewarded by the knowledge that we did a lot of good work And everyone who participated was further rewarded with a WebPlatform t shirt and John Allsopp s book Developing with web standards And one fellow with abundant good fortune won a Microsoft Surface Pro We re looking forward to more doc sprints both here in the Puget Sound region and around the world And in case you were wondering no we did not lose power on campus Special thanks to Alan Stearns of Adobe and David Storey our local CSS and WebPlatform gurus who tirelessly roamed the room and answered questions about HTML SQL blocks CSS what makes good pizza and many other topics Post doc sprint bowling in UW s HUB Posted in Community Content Tagged Doc Sprints Web Platform Doc Sprint August 28th 2013 Zurich Switzerland Jul 10 2013 by Chris Mills Followers of the WebPlatform org effort will remember that we ran our groundbreaking first European Web Platform Doc Sprint on February 8 9 in Berlin Germany This went down well and a lot of good work was done on the CSS property and API documentation The latest good news is that we are running another Doc Sprint this time in Zurich Switzerland on August 28th Our new Doc Sprint is being run to coincide with Switzerland s premier front end developer conference Frontend Conference Zurich which happens in the two days after the sprint Use this as a great opportunity to attend a great conference and make a great contribution to front end web documentation all in one trip Aims of the Doc Sprint Doc Sprints are great places to have a great and geeky time make new friends and meet old ones At this event Beginners will learn how to get started as WebPlatform org contributors Those more experienced can dive in and make great uninterrupted progress on content Great new ideas will form and grow through collaboration including demos plugins and more Bugs will get fixed on the spot Food and drinks including but not limited to beer will be provided throughout the day Swag will be tossed into the crowds Winners will be crowned and prizes raffled away A lot of fun is waiting for attendees The main focus topics at this event will be CSS properties and HTML elements DOM but if you would rather work on something else inside the WebPlatform org documentation remit we are more than happy to accommodate you If you want to check up on what is ok to work on and suggest ideas please tell us via the public mailing list Doc Sprint Venue and Sponsors This Doc Sprint is organized by Adobe and being held at the awesome Colab Zurich who are hosting the event as a sponsor and contributor to WebPlatform org Find full address details and directions on their website at http colab zurich ch Sign me up Please sign up for the event at our Eventbrite page We are looking forward seeing you in late August in Switzerland Posted in Community Content Events Tagged Community Doc Sprints The 1st European Doc Sprint is Feb 8 9 in Berlin Jan 16 2013 by Andre Jay Meissner People all over the web are contributing great ideas and tools and the momentum for viable open global web standards is growing every day Unfortunately disparate inconsistent and outdated information still needs to be collected and perfected in one place we all can rely on WebPlatform org is an idea that is coming into being through corporate sponsors open web stewards and most importantly individuals who are taking charge and creating a workspace for quality documentation Everyday people volunteer their ideas and their time and build great content in a single place But we still have a lot to do One way we get folks inspired is through our Doc Sprints These concentrated days of documentation work allow people to get started really get stuck in and make rapid progress They also provide direct face to face contact between community members who previously only chatted online Doc Sprints are places with lots of great ideas flying around Bugs get addressed on the spot Mini projects spring up and get prototyped and utilized right away But mostly it s a time to gather together individuals who care about the web to work towards common goals So without further ado it is a privilege to announce that the very first European Doc Sprint is taking place in Berlin on February 8 9 hosted by Adobe The main focus will be on improving WebPlatform org content but in addition we also want to put weight on encouraging web community managers to run their own Doc Sprints If you are a web community manager and would like to organize a Web Platform Doc Sprint of your own we would love you to join us in Berlin so we can give you the information you need to get started Make sure you select the appropriate ticket category on registration so we can have your special Doc Sprint
