In March, the Project Spartan team hosted a small, by-invitation workshop
at our Silicon Valley campus with developers attending from popular sites and frameworks based around the Silicon Valley area. This was an invaluable opportunity for us to share our plans and meet face to face with developers that build with the Web platform.
We heard great feedback from attendees and we’re excited to announce that we are coming back very soon! On May 5th and 6th, we’ll be hosting the Project Spartan Web Summit
at Microsoft’s Silicon Valley campus in Mountain View, CA. This time we’re turning it up to 10 with two days of content packed with deep technical sessions from the Project Spartan team and fantastic guest speakers from the Web development community, including Kimberly Blessing
, Kyle Simpson
, and Sara Soueidan
, and IEDevChat
. In our technical sessions, you’ll get into the nuts and bolts of the latest interoperable Web technologies; learn how to make your site or Web app shine across browsers and platforms with tools like ECMAScript 6, WebAudio, WebGL, Cordova, SVG elements, and much more. We’ll take you under the hood of Project Spartan and its new rendering engine, show you the latest updates to our roadmap, and host open Q&A panels with the Project Spartan leadership.
You’ll also have the opportunity to test-drive Project Spartan on our latest builds alongside engineers from the platform team, who can guide your testing, answer questions, and take your feedback on any problems you encounter.
Good news for those of you not able to make it to our Silicon Valley location: We’ll be live streaming most of our sessions around the world on Channel 9
and recording the remainder. Tune in during the event to watch live, or check in afterwards for on-demand viewing.
We’re excited to see you there! Head on over to the Project Spartan Web Summit
event page to learn more and sign up. Registration starts at 10:00am PDT on Tuesday, April 14th.
