On this All Hallow's Eve, we're wearing our dinosaur costumes in
celebration of this day and of another great month-- and we'll be
keeping  them on until we get to China.  October brought in many
new members to our community, hundreds of registrants for our
next big event, a dazzling  lineup of confirmed speakers (including
Tim Berners-Lee!), and we officially became part of the W3C!


=== Welcome New Subscribers ===

 Welcome to the many new subscribers we met at HTML5 DevConf in
 San Francisco!  We really enjoyed talking to so many passionate
 web developers and telling you all about Test the Web Forward
 and WebPlatform.org [1]. Although not surprising, we were happy to
 hear that the goals of both of these initiatives resonated deeply
 with you.

=== Upcoming TestTWF Events ===

--> Test the Web Forward @TPAC, Shenzhen, China: 11/9, 9AM-7PM CST

 We're less than two weeks away and registration for TestTWF Shenzhen
 is now full! We're proud to have the W3C Beihang Site Manager, Angel
 Li as our keynote speaker and very excited to have Tim Berners-Lee
 add some parting words to wrap up the event. Additionally, we have
 some excellent instructional talks lined up from Zhiaqiang Zhang and
 Belem Zhang, both from Intel and both TestTWF alumni and experienced
 W3C test writers.

 If you're not able to attend in person, you're still very much
 welcome to participate.  Log on to GitHub [2][3] and jump into
 #testing on irc.w3.org and find out where you can start.  We'll
 happily take pull requests from all over the world. We'd especially
 like to see some past attendees from the Beijing, Shanghai, and Tokyo
 events!

 Event schedule with extra timezones for convenience:

             Shenzhen |   Tokyo     |   London   |  San Francisco

 -----------------------------------------------------------------

 Sat Nov 9  | 9AM-7PM  |  10AM-8PM   |  2AM-12PM  | (Fri) 5PM-3AM


 During the event, follow @testthewebfwd [4] on Twitter or
 @TestTheWebForward [5] on Sina Weibo, #testtwf on both.


=== Test the Web Forward is Now Officially Part of the W3C ===

 Last month, we told you about the new and improved
 TestTheWebForward.org website [6], which was part of transition. Now,
 we're pleased to announce that Test the Web Forward is now officially
 part of the W3C [7]. This a great development that simply means that
 TestTWF now belongs to The Web, to the W3C members, and to you. While
 we are actively working to build out this domain to include more
 than documentation, the events will continue be driven by the
 community. See below for how you can have one of your own.

=== Get Involved ===

--> Contribute to TestTheWebForward.org

 With the relaunch of website, the W3C has provided a completely open
 repository on GitHub to host its content. We invite all of you
 to add your own, whether it be additional documentation [8], a blog
 post [9], something on the TODO list [10], or just a bug fix -
 we'll take your contribution [11].

--> Host your own Test the Web Forward event!

 As you start your planning for 2014, consider holding an event of
 your own - an intimate meetup focused on a topic suited to your
 local community or user group, or partner with others to put on a
 hackathon to crank out more tests over some beer and pizza.
 Start the conversation at public-testtwf-planning@w3.org. We
 have kits to get you going and a growing network of TestTWF
 experts around the world.

Let's keep Making the Web a Better Place!
