Preparing for v1.0 of the Web Literacy Standard
The Mozilla Festival (25-27 October, London) is now just six weeks away. We’re releasing v1.0 of the Web Literacy Standard there, so we’ve set ourselves a deadline of the end of September before a ‘code freeze’ goes into effect.
The canonical document is now here: http://bit.ly/weblitstdprep.
Most of what we’re doing between now and then is fine-tuning as over the summer we’ve already:
- Released a Request for Comments version of the Standard (see [here]((http://literaci.es/getting-weblitstd-ready-for-beta)) and here)
- Come up with a roadmap to v1.0
- Responded to, and acted upon, comments we’ve received (see here and here)
- Tested out translating the Standard into other languages
- Spent time debating how HTML and CSS should feature in the Standard (see here and here)
- Thought through how people can align with the Standard
- Started mapping existing learning activities to the Standard
You can see a reasonably up-to-date list of those people who have had some input in creating the Web Literacy Standard here. Many thanks to them all - we’ve done a great job so far!
Finally, we’ve got some half-hour hackfests to focus on each strand one at a time. The process worked well for the RFC release and it looks like it will enable us to get a v1.0 out of the door by the end of September!
