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.
If the conference makes you interested in finding out more about how to put practical standards and latest techniques into practice, explore the the learning resources available at Learnable.com.
