W3C launches WebPlatform Docs

The W3C has announced WebPlatform Docs, a "community-driven site that aims to become a comprehensive and authoritative source for web developer documentation". With the backing of Adobe, Facebook, Google, HP, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, Opera and others, an alpha release is now live; the site is designed to enable web professionals to save time and resources by consulting with confidence a single site for current, cross-browser and cross-device coding best practices.

W3C head of marketing and communications Ian Jacobs told .net discussions began a year ago, and although the W3C's focus has traditionally been standards, the organisation has "always known people need additional materials – primers, material that puts all the pieces together – and we have done some ourselves, but it has not been our focus". This latest project is, he said, "part of a larger effort to work more closely with developers".
