#2B2 - Useful Tools and Libraries - Do you want to change the world (wide web)?

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The web platform is constantly growing and evolving making it an exciting area to work in. However it is also frustrating as new features aren't always supported in all browsers. Even more frustrating is when implementations of features differ between browsers, making development and testing an arduous process. If only there was a way we could help...

But wait, there is!

In this session I will introduce attendees to the "web-platform-tests" project - a W3C-coordinated open source suite of regression tests to improve the web platform. We'll explore the project, and get hands-on by running some tests.

Attendees will get the most out of the session if they have some experience of web development, but anyone is welcome.
