    yet another collaboration of Web Platform Docs and dedicate it to Herb Posted in Community Events How we re working at WebPlatform org Feb 07 2013 by Chris Mills I thought I d share some thoughts this week on how we are working towards making web standards documentation rock more here at WebPlatform org We knew it would be challenging to deal with this much content especially as we are mostly volunteers with only a finite amount of time available to work on the project We ve already achieved much working towards our goal of making WebPlatform org the definitive client side web technology documentation site but there is still much more to do This is why we opened it up to the wider community as an alpha The plan has always been to include the public as early as possible The web does after all belong to all of us To facilitate getting things done we have a number of communication means at our disposal We have a number of discussion methods available including IRC and a mailing list These are mostly used for general communication such as announcing in person Doc Sprints soliciting feedback and discussing current and future work For focusing on particular tasks we Identify specific tasks to work on To make the work more manageable we have started to split it into manageable chunks and we work on each item in turn Discuss these tasks via our regular communication means and also have more involved discussions at our regular weekly meetings simultaneously held on teleconference and IRC Record task priority lists and who is working on each task at our beta requirements page Create detailed task plans to outline how the work will be done with subtasks and people assigned to complete them Get on with the tasks Speed up task progress with intensive bursts of work at Doc Sprint events Current priorities At the moment the main topics we are focusing on are CSS properties and JavaScript APIs Our plan is to perfect the topic pages for these two major areas over the next two to three months This is where you come in If you are knowledgeable and passionate about these areas please get in touch with us to find out how best to contribute If you don t wish to contribute to either of these focus areas and wish to work on something else instead get in touch anyway as we will be able to find something for you to do The next Doc Sprint we have coming up is in Berlin Germany this week we expect to make a lot of progress on our priority tasks there Posted in Community Events Tagged apis css doc sprint work Documenting the Future CSS Regions Jan 31 2013 by Julee Web Platform Docs is an ambitious project It is challenging enough to document all the features that work across browsers today without delving into experimental features But it s also critical for web developers to learn what s coming up next Such features are not as widely documented elsewhere and getting early feedback on them helps make sure they are done right So when an important CSS layout feature like CSS Regions gets experimental support from two major browser engines WebKit Chrome and Safari and Trident Internet Explorer we felt it was important to document it on Web Platform Docs You will have to enable experimental features to see how CSS Regions works CSS Regions helps solve a long standing fundamental design problem allowing content to flow smoothly from one layout element to another without forcing a position With CSS Regions you can create complex magazine style designs in which content flows through freely positioned layout elements Mike Sierra wrote up a tutorial that shows how flows work how to arrange a layout enable it control region breaks style fragments trim content and create adaptive layouts with media queries The new API starts with the css regions package and includes APIs such as CSSRegionStyleRule NamedFlow and Region New CSS property pages have also been added such as flow from flow into region fragment and the region rule Mike also posted an example he describes here http letmespellitoutforyou com samples region mq sample html Resize the window to see the simplified mobile layout the tutorial describes Posted in Site News
