Web Platform Docs: An Awesome New Open Web Standards Documentation Site
In case you missed it: today Google, Mozilla, Opera, Microsoft, Facebook, the W3C and others announced the launch of a critical
step towards better education of open web standards on the web - a new documentation site called http://WebPlatform.org
I'm really glad the site is finally out, but am even more excited to see how the web development community reacts to it. A documentation site which harnesses the combined efforts of both browser vendors and others involved in the standards process could spell the end of fragmented, sometimes outdated content about web standards. I for one will be looking forward to contributing some hours into the site over the next few weeks.
The site already boasts content from the MSDN IE docs, quite a few HTML5 Rocks articles (with more to come) and Opera's great web standards curriculum. Remember, as long as you comply with the licensing agreements, copying over some MDN content will also be of big help!.
If you'd like to join me in contributing to WebPlatform.org, please see the getting started guide http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Getting_Started
