Webbutveckling med standarder

The title of this entry may not mean much to most of my readers since it is in Swedish. The reason for that is that I’ve finally gone ahead and published something I’ve been spending a lot of time on lately (which explains why there haven’t been too many “real” entries here).

Webbutveckling med standarder is a document in Swedish in which I explain what web standards are, and why using them is a good idea. I’ve also written a bit about accessibility and good URL:s, and the document contains a lot of references and links to great resources and tutorials around the web.

So why write a document like this in Swedish? Well, I’ve noticed that even though every Swedish web developer I’ve worked with does understand English well, many are more comfortable with documents that are written in their native language. Since I want as many as possible of the people I work with to know about, understand, and hopefully embrace web standards, I’m hoping that by removing the language barrier I can reach out to more local web developers.

If you read the document and find any mistakes, typos, or other problems, or if you think I’ve left something out, please let me know so I can fix it.

  1. Good call! I’m often ranting about this very subject to my class in school, saying pretty much what your document says. I’ll forward the link and slap anyone who doesn’t read it.

  2. Toppklass! Det här har behövts länge !

    Mycket bra webbplats. Här har många webbutvecklare och kravspecskrivare mycket att lära

  4. Very nice, I’ll be referring people to that document in future conversations about web standards.

    How about a version in English too?

    I’ve been thinking about whether I should make an English version of the document. However, since there already is so much well-written information about web standards in English, I’m not sure there really is a need for it. But if enough people ask for an English version I’ll do it.

  6. Roger: While there is plenty of information on web standards in English already, that information is scattered all over the web.
