Web Animation Weekly

Hello everyone!

I am at my very first TPAC in San Francisco. This is the annual event where all the different working groups at the W3C get together, shake hands, and plot the future of CSS, SVG, WebVR, and generally shape the web. It's always been my dream to be here. I'm so excited!

Many thanks to Ivana for helping with this and previous issues. Without people like her—and you—I wouldn't be able to do half as much as I do. That's a lesson worth repeating: You'll achieve more with friends than you ever could on your own. And that's the spirit behind the W3C's working groups. Many people working together moves the Web forward faster.

Are you interested in getting involved in shaping the future of the web, too? You can propose or join a community group and get your ideas out there!
