Test The Web Forward is a movement to make the Web better by involving the community in Web standards. It brings the community closer to the very specifications that they use to craft web experiences and helps them discover how they can shape the future of the Web. Test The Web Forward provides education, resources and events around web standards and the critical role of tests.
This kit will help you host a Test the Web Forward meetup event. We assume that you have experience hosting meetup events, so this kit focuses solely on content related to Test the Web Forward.
If you surface any issues with the kit or have any contributions or questions, please feel free to contact us. We want to help you throw a successful event!
The best way to get started is by reading though the information on TesttheWebForward.org and by taking a look at the blog posts about past events. This will give you an idea of the goals of the movement and will give you a feel for larger events.
We suggest selecting and presenting on a single topic from the list below. You will be able to present on many (if not all) of the suggested topics and we can help answer any questions that you have prior to presenting.
Prior to announcing a meetup, we ask that you contact us to let us know what you are planning. We can answer your questions, help you locate a speaker, and help to promote the event.
Also, subscribe to the W3C Test the Web Forward mailing list so that you can get and post updates on events.
After you have selected a topic, figured out the logistics of your event and are ready to announce your meetup to the world, contact us, and we can help by listing the event on TesttheWebForward.org and by getting the word out on our social media and other channels.
Also, please announce your meetup to the W3C Test the Web Forward mailing list and please encourage attendees to subscribe to this list.
After the meetup, we would appreciate it if there was a blog post summarizing the event. When you post to your blog, let us know so we can tweet it.
Also, a quick summary of the meetup should be sent to the W3C Test the Web Forward mailing list.
In order to improve Test the Web forward, we need your help! Please send us feedback on how to improve any aspect of Test the Web Forward.
As mentioned above, we suggest selecting and presenting on a single topic. You will be able to present on many (if not all) of the suggested topics and we can help answer any questions that you have prior to presenting.
