Thanks, Chris! Just returned - I'll review the links today. At first glance, I have the most common cause in the mobile and cross-device development areas.

As a data point, I can also share the curriculum from my mobile web development class (it's a few years old - doesn't cover HTML5) - I own the copyright for it and was thinking about releasing it to the public anyway.

Thanks for the welcome,
Gail

Hi Gail!

I'd like to bid you welcome - it's a pleasure to have you on board.

In terms of what you can contribute to, we've got a whole wealth of tasks started already, split into different projects: The place to find these are on out Wiki, at http://www.w3.org/community/webed/wiki/Main_Page#Project_activities.

The learning material project (http://www.w3.org/community/webed/wiki/Learning_material) has the most going on right now - feel free to contribute here. We do have a need for the development of a Mobile/cross device development course - see http://www.w3.org/community/webed/wiki/Learning_material#Write_the_mobile_web_course! We have a few contributors interested, but things have not start moving yet.

We'll also have a few things moving already in http://www.w3.org/community/webed/wiki/Outreach soon, and http://www.w3.org/community/webed/wiki/Curriculum.

Have a look round, and let me know what you are interested in contributing to, and how much time you have to do these contributions.

All the best,

Chris Mills

Hi,

I'm a new CG member from Intel in Portland, OR, where I work on HTML5 on Linux-based OSes, especially our new effort Tizen, which features an HTML5 application API. I'm also an author/educator/evangelist for standards-based mobile web development. I met a few of you at the Seattle W3Conf recently - screaminggeek on the conference IRC - and I met at least Doug in person.

Where can I jump in? I saw prior threads on the list archives about outreach to community colleges (I taught mobile web dev at a community college for a few years and could help there), and of course I am happy to contribute educational content, especially w/respect to HTML5. I'm good at translating geek to plain English and hope to use that skill in this CG.

Here are a few examples of my work:
