Bernard Gidon on the W3C events:

"We are very excited to be part of the W3C HTML5 Days as Berlin is bringing a lot of inspiration and innovations to the world. The W3C standards and technologies represent a huge opportunity for all companies to develop their presence and business in the WWW. W3C provides a stable and powerful complete architecture for applications development and long term vision and also the right environment to develop new ideas, to influence the technology and to take a leadership role. This event is the perfect catalyst for all the German companies to integrate their creativity with the Web, as the Web is for everyone and it's also a way to develop a stronger collaboration between German companies and the W3C."
