I’ve become part of the newly-formed Wellington Web Standards Group. Our purpose is to help New Zealand websites become more standards compliant. To this end we’re organising some meetings this year; the next is coming up soon.
Date: Thursday 16th June
Time: 4:00pm — 6:30pm
Venue: National Library Auditorium theatre
A representative from the State Services Commission will be talking about the NZ web guidelines and the implications of them becoming mandatory. It’ll be a really interesting presentation and there’ll be lots of opportunity for participation and discussion.
Dave Turnbull and Dan Smith from Chrometoaster will present a case study on the development of the recently launched Weta Workshops website. It’s a great example of a visually stunning, standards-compliant website and the case study will be very interesting.
There will be a NZ$10 cover charge per person for the meeting. This is to cover venue hire plus provision of drinks and nibbles for everyone. Please pay this at the door on the night. Let the group know if you plan to attend, firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know how many to cater for.
