Making the web awesome

Come to Adobe Web Platform’s session at Google I/O

We are incredibly excited to have an opportunity to speak at Google I/O. For anyone who has been, you know its a high-energy event where you can learn so much about innovative features for web, mobile and social. Also, Google I/O is right in our backyard – here in sunny San Francisco, so we never miss an opportunity to be there and meet with talented developers and designers to learn what is new and share what Adobe is doing.

In that vein, we are thrilled to have a session currently scheduled for Day 2 from 3:45 – 4:45. It is titled “New Web Tools and Advanced CSS/HTML5 Features from Adobe & Google“. Our very own Christian Cantrell and Vincent Hardy will be speaking and will be joined by Google’s Alex Danilo. The session is a meaty one – if you are interested in innovation on the web, this is a not-to-miss!

In it,  the speakers will discuss new web features like CSS Regions, Shaders, and Exclusions where they will provide a technical overview and also show compelling demos of those features working with other newly proposed web features like Shadow DOM and CSS Variables. They will also cover new web features Adobe has recently announced, like CSS Compositing & Blending – again, showing how the intersection of these features can let you build dynamic and expressive content in a simpler and more declarative manner. Of course this session is not just about emerging web standards. It will also cover new Adobe tools that help web developers like Adobe Shadow, which lets you better debug and visualize your content on multiple devices as you develop it. They will also discuss “Brackets”, a new open source project Adobe is working on to create a code editor for the web built entirely upon web standards.

In addition to the session, Adobe will be exhibiting many web standards demos and showcasing new HTML tools in the Chrome Developer Sandbox in the main exhibition area. So swing by at any time, check out demos, learn more and say hi – we hope to see you there!
