On Monday, Adobe introduced its Adobe & HTML website. What is this you ask? Adobe wanted to create a space where they could share what they’ve been working on within the community. Adobe is championing a fair amount of work with their HTML5 and CSS3 projects, and this is the place where you can keep up with what’s happening with this work.
Here you’ll find information regarding the specific projects they are currently working on, community events they will be hosting/attending as well as information on how you can participate yourself.
As of now, the site is broken down into three project areas, Web Standards, Open Source and Tools & Services. Adobe is currently working to standardize some new CSS3 features such as CSS Regions, CSS Shaders and CSS Exclusions. They’re contributing to the Apache Cordova, jQuery Mobile and WebKit open source projects. They’re also sharing info on the tools they are working on to better enable web designers and developers.
None of this stuff is necessarily secret, but it’s good to see a large company take a leading role with these things and actually put on display what they’re working on. Adobe definitely has an interest in these projects from a PR (and probably financial in some cases) standpoint, but I do think they are doing some genuinely good things with this project.
Adobe & HTML is planned to be a dynamic website so keep checking back to see what the crew at Adobe is currently working on.
