SitePoint Streams W3Conf 2013 Live

Ricky Onsman

The web standards organization World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) held its annual conference for web professionals on February 21 and 22 in San Francisco.

Not everyone could get there, of course, so SitePoint was given permission to stream the event live for our global audience, as we did for the first W3C conference in 2011.

All the action was free to view online here during both days of the conference, and now we can offer you recorded video of all but two of the sessions.

The theme for this year’s conference was “Practical standards for web professionals”, and the lineup of speakers was very impressive.
