Nokia is dedicated to the Open Web, and for that reason we are proud to be among the Stewards of Web Platform Docs. This is a new community-driven site for web developer documentation, now in its alpha release.
Web Platform Docs was created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in collaboration with Nokia and several other technology companies. The site will save web professionals both time and resources by providing them with a single location for cross-browser and cross-device best practices, including:
- How to use features of the Open Web platform — with syntax and examples.
- Interoperability of various technologies across platforms and devices.
- Standardization status of each technology specification.
- Stability and implementation status of features.
W3C, along with Nokia and other fellow Stewards Adobe, Facebook, Google, HP, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Opera, have launched Web Platform Docs with initial documents contributed as raw material for the community to shape. Yet anyone will be able to contribute content to this new site. The W3C will serve as the site’s convener. And as the open web platform evolves, the entire community—including both the original and the new Stewards—will help maintain and improve the content. What’s more, the site will foster sharing and reuse by making all materials on the site freely available and licensed.
“Nokia is pleased to be a Founding Steward of the W3C’s Web Platform Docs activity,” says Timo Ali-Vehmas, VP of Compatibility and Industry Collaboration at Nokia. “Web Platform Docs provides a unique Web site for professionals to save time and resources by consulting a single site for current, cross-browser, and cross-device coding best practices. Nokia supports commonly used web standards, and has shipped hundreds of millions of devices supporting various Open Web standards. With a strong foundation of documentation oriented towards web authors and developers, we believe web developers can build solid mobile web experiences for the next billion mobile consumers.”
We encourage all developers who are interested in web technologies to sign up and participate to move the Open Web forward at Web Platform Docs alpha site: http://webplatform.org/docs.
