    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 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 Reilly has generously provided the facilities and experts through the Fluent conference but the doc sprint is open to the general public We receive content from various sources companies individual 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 Birthday party slash Doc Sprint Amsterdam October 12 2013 Oct 18 2013 by scottrowe Never doubt that a 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 at a doc sprint win free stuff The local luminaries also graced us with not only an appearance they chipped in on the CSS properties and worked on developing automated compatibility information for WPD Peter Paul Koch of Quirksmode fame Ronald Mansveld and Niels Leenheer of HTML5Test are working with Doug Schepers of the W3C to aggregate compatibility information from across the web and display it on Web Platform Docs The Syndics revisited This time it s the fabric of the web Okay one last cheesy mashup featuring the work of Dutch masters of the Golden Age just to tie up the analogy above and hopefully put an end to all the silliness of the last three blog posts The real Syndics did show up but left abruptly when we told them the Linen API wasn t standards track The Syndics of the Drapers Guild by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn courtesy of the Rijksmuseum So even if we couldn t finish the cake we certainly took a big bite out of the work on Web Platform Docs As this post goes to press the CSS properties are being finished and the last loose ends of that project are getting tied up We look forward to developing a new JavaScript reference and over hauling our HTML elements and attributes in up coming doc sprints We hope you ll join us Posted in Community Events Site News A Great First Year Oct 17 2013 by scottrowe Forty thousand some odd page edits on 8 740 total pages by 23 939 registered users summarizes a year of effort toward creating the web s definitive source for technical documentation Web Platform Docs is still just a baby yet to emerge from pre alpha into beta release and there s a lot of work to do before we can lend it the car keys but it s off to a great start The community armed to the teeth heads out to document the web Content and lots of it At this time last year we launched the site with a huge pile of content donated by Microsoft Mozilla Opera the W3C and Google It had to be huge and consequently it needed a lot of work Updating and organizing the content was and is the most important activity on the site Thanks to the invaluable efforts of Dave Gash Mike Sierra Lance Leonard and many others we reorganized the API Reference updating 9 imported API documents and adding 13 new documents in over 730 pages This provides the web with an excellent reference for many of the main HTML5 APIs including a few that are documented nowhere else like the WebAudio API We ve also developed a comprehensive CSS properties reference This reference is almost over 275 properties finished well almost finished enough to let Adobe Brackets and Chrome DevTools cross reference the content so that it is available to users right in those tools Too many of you to name here have contributed to this effort but this project would be nowhere without the unflagging leadership of Julee Burdekin and she would like to thank you all you know who you are for helping out on this Keep up the good work we re almost done While the API reference and the CSS properties were the big content areas we could hold up and point to for this retrospective there was a lot of work on the content generally especially early on just after it was imported We quickly realized that we needed structures in which to organize all of the pages and landing pages for each area Chris Mills did a lot of work on these and Seb Desbenoit created the icons that neatly describe each of the content areas It is the world wide web and we ve had a lot of help from some great translators like Nestor Rojas with renditions of WPD pages in Spanish Crotel who has provided many Chinese translations and Hooney who translated several pages to Korean Infrastructure to enable us The daunting the task of wrangling the content was made less so when the community rallied to build better tools and processes to support WPD Jonathan Garbee wiz kid extraordinaire developed project webplatform org our beloved issue tracking system This was a huge improvement over the old Bugzilla implementation we started with and it made building the site way way easier One day in April Search was suddenly working We had launched with the Search functionality largely undeveloped Denis Ah Kang came to the rescue fixed our Search and thereby saved the community fistfuls of hair Enhancements to the templates and forms that deliver and present the content were needed across the wiki A special shout out to Frozenice Alex Komoroske and the Template Corps for expertly developing the guts of Semantic Media Wiki forms and templates This site is all about code We badly needed a way for users to play with code in real time and Lea Verou built the codelet tool code webplatform org just in time for us to use with the CSS properties documentation Down in the engine room we ve benefitted from the expertise of Ryan Lane who fixed the pernicious Session Timeout Bug among many other invaluable contributions and Renoir Boulanger who since he joined us as a full time Operations Engineer has been making enormous improvements in site performance Also Renoir and Patrick D Souza have been busy developing the analytics infrastructure to keep track of all this and recently deployed Piwik an open source analytics engine Community for the win Web Platform Docs is community driven as well as a community destination We also engage with the community through e mail the IRC channel and blog posts shameless plug But when we need to do some heavy lifting we hold a Web Platform Doc Sprint These little get togethers have proven to be the highlights of the year helping build content the site and the community in a fun productive forum We ve held eight Doc Sprints this year both in the U S and in Europe Peter Lubbers of Google has administered Doc Sprints in San Francisco and Mountain View Julee Burdekin of Adobe ran two Doc Sprints in San Francisco Andre Jay Meissner of Adobe put on the Berlin and Zurich Doc Sprints Eliot Graff of Microsoft ran the Seattle Doc Sprint and Paul Verbeek did the Amsterdam Doc Sprint These Doc Sprints are hard work yes but so worth it So what s next We have a birthday party to tell you about next blog post coming soon But if you re still with me here you might want to know what we plan for next year Beta release We expect to have completed the requirements for our first official release Many of the items on this list are complete already and celebrated above JavaScript Microsoft has donated another big batch of content a JavaScript reference and Max Polk and Eliot Graff are getting ready to import it into WPD We can t wait to get started with updates and examples for this content DOM Elements Attributes We need to develop an architecture that allows users to

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

2013 by NicdaCosta Last week saw our fondue pot of left over properties go down well as we started recapping with the help of the Switzerland Doc Sprint This week we thought we would ease into our next Web Platform Wednesday as everyone starts to get back into the swing of things As we start to revise all the hard work that everyone has put into the previous weeks getting all the CSS properties documented we thought we would continue to work on and cover any and all properties that may have been missed along the way This can range from working with layout and grid properties to putting your typographer s hat on and immersing into the world of CSS text properties No matter what your strength is or the extent of your knowledge this week s Web Platform Wednesday has a little something for everyone If you are still not sure if there is something for you then head on over to the webplatform IRC channel and chat with this great community or even send us an email on our mailing list as

Zurich you can at least be with the doc sprinters in spirit as they and you dip into this week s cheesy or chocolately pot of CSS properties Indeed there is a veritable Matterhorn of left over properties that we need to revisit from previous weeks So don your crampons ascend to the Web Platform Wednesday page and pick a route er property Your coordinators or Peters Taugwalder will be ready
