Microsoft is proud to be the host sponsor of the W3C’s first ever developer conference being held tomorrow (Tuesday November 15). W3Conf: Practical Standards for Web Professionals (follow along at #w3conf and @w3cConf) is chock full of industry speakers talking to developers and designers about HTML5 and related technologies for the open web platform. Our very own Giorgio Sardo (@gisardo), Rey Bango (@reybango) and Paul Cotton will be representing Microsoft among a long list of industry luminaries.

We are excited to be attending at the Redmond Marriott Town Center and hope to see you there. If you’re interested in joining us in person, there are a limited number of tickets still available through the registration page. Or if you want to tune in from the web, the sessions will be streamed live and available after the event on demand.

You can catch the live streaming here from 8:30am PST on Tuesday November 15th and 16th, and on demand afterwards from the session listing on the home page here.

Here are the sessions being presented by Rey and Giorgio, and be sure to check out the panel session that includes Paul Cotton.
