CSS Specification reading
On Wednesday 12th of June, the second Specification Reading workshop by Rachel Andrew will take place in Amsterdam. Entrance is free for members; non-members pay €250 incl. tax.
The workshop will take place at Spaces Vijzelstraat. We start at 09:30 and end between 16:00 and 17:00. Coffee, tea, and lunch are included.
What we'll do
In this workshop we're going to read an entire CSS specification, word by word and paragraph by paragraph. We will consider the details of the specification, and give feedback on word choice, terminology, clarity, the examples, the order in which features are explained, and more. This feedback will be very useful for Rachel, who edits several specifications, or other CSS WG members, since it constitutes web developer feedback.
In addition, you will learn how a specification is written, why it is sometimes deemingly dense, and what kind of work goes into it. Also, Rachel will give an overview of the W3C process that eventually creates Candidate Recommendations.
Rachel will determine the exact specification we're going to read closer to the workshop.
