I sent this note out in August but never saw a response so maybe it didn't 
go through.  Here it is again!


I'm new to the Device APIs Working Group mailing list and wanted to 
introduce myself.  My name is Lisa Seacat DeLuca and I'm a mobile software 
engineer for IBM currently focusing on Apache Cordova.  I noticed there 
appears to be a lot of overlap between the Cordova APIs and the specs this 
working group is focusing on.  I'm curious if anyone from this working 
group is also involved with Cordova?  Another area I'm interested in 
learning more about is the accessibility aspects of the specs.  For 
example, in html there is an alt element for images to specify a textual 
description of the image, is there something similar available for the 
Media Capture specs? 

I can contribute by providing a hook into the Cordova development team as 
I am a committer for Apache Cordova as well as helping to test 
specifications, etc.  My background is in Java development as well as web 
technologies such as html, css, and javascript and of course hybrid mobile 

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone more.  Feel free to reach 
out to me on Linkedin: http://www.linkedin.com/in/lisaseacat

Subject:        [admin] Welcome to the DAP WG!

Dear Lisa 

(belated) Welcome to the Device APIs Working Group!

If you have not already done so, please review the group charter  [1], the 
public working group page and its roadmap [2], and the  approved and draft 
meeting  minutes [3]. The working group page has information on our 
meetings  [4], including our weekly teleconferences. You will want to use 
IRC at meetings [5] and if  a dedicated IRC client does not work you can 
use the web client [6]. 

All of our technical work is to be done on our public  mailing list ( 
public-device-apis@w3.org ) [7] and in our Media Capture task force [8] 
and WebIntents task force (not active) [9].  Please note that mail for the 
task forces does not appear on the DAP mailing list, so you have to join 
the task forces explicitly to participate. The task forces may also have 
additional teleconferences. 

Please note that we are *not* planning on meeting at TPAC - we currently 
have no F2F scheduled.

Please introduce yourself on this mailing list (if you haven't already 
done so), indicating who you  are, why you are interested in participating 
in the Device APIs  WG,  which parts of the charter are of particular 
interest, your expectations, and where you might be able to contribute. 

Thank you

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch, Nokia;
Chair, W3C DAP Working Group
