Web Essentials 2004 looks to be an inspiring conference on Web standards, and a really good excuse to travel to Syndey late September/October. The conference will cover the key aspects of web standards: accessibility, markup (HTML/XHTML) and presentation (CSS). The organisers say that ‘WE04 will not only teach hands on techniques but set a new standard to which we can all aspire.’
And they might be right, given that the guest presenters include Dave Shea, Doug Bowman, Joe Clark and Russ Weakley.
I for one will try and make it. If I do, it’ll be my first time in Australia, my second time in the southern hemisphere and only my third excursion out of Europe. Some are widely travelled; I am thinly travelled.
