W3C Brazil Office announces the third "Café with Browser"

(adapted from originally posted at http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Offices/)

"Café with Browser" is a very successful event series etablished by the W3C Brazil Office which is hosted by the Brazilian Network Information Center – NIC.br. The Idea is to provide a forum for free talks with developers, researchers and the browser industry developers teams. The first edition (May 15th) brought Charles McCathieNeville, Opera's standards director. Then (June 19th), Mozilla Firefox was the next to have a sit. Chris Hofmann, Mozilla Foundation's director of engineering and special projects and Marcio Galli, consultant and active in the Mozilla community talked with the participants. “This Office initiative is an opportunity to check how much the browser industry is committed to web standards and to know what they are planning for the future in a short term. On the other hand it is also an opportunity to talk to the browser industry about expectations and needs of the user community”, says Vagner Diniz, W3C Brazil Office manager.

Now the W3C Brazil Office invited people to participate in the third edition of “Café with Browser” on 21 August, in São Paulo. Participants talked on Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and its compliance to standards, its CSS 2.1 implementation and the Microsoft vision of the future of the web. Microsoft will be represented by Fernando Gebara, Latin America standards manager, Pedro Bojikian, IE product manager and Murilo Curti, Windows Team software engineer.

“Café with Browser” is an open and free meeting but with only a few places available. In the first meeting, "Café with Browser" had more than 50 attendees from government, Internet providers, telcos, digital agencies, developers and a few banks. In the last one, a webcast facility was introduced and there were around 40 people in the room and over 100 online participants, 15 of them overseas. Those who are interested in participating should send an e-mail to eventos@cgi.br.

Resources on previous events are available: Charles McCathieNeville, slides; Chris Hofmann and Marcio Galli, video in English; and Chris Hofmann, slides in English.

Online webcast was also provided for this last meeting and videos will be available soon. Web 2.0 tools also available. In Twitter, follow the hash tag #cafecombrowser. In Flickr, search for cafecombrowser.
