In order to bring this site to the community, and to maintain it, we relied on the generosity of the Web Platform stewards.
This site has been convened by W3C. The other stewards, listed below, support it through content, people, funding, and other contributions. More information on each of the stewards can be found on their pages.
Here's what some of our stewards think of WebPlatform.org, and why they are sponsoring.
The web platform has become the medium of creative expression for web developers and designers, and it continues to evolve and to become ever more expressive. Having a reliable source of information for modern, up to date best practices is a huge time saver for creative professionals and will allow them to focus on what they do best: creating. Adobe is proud to participate in this effort to bring together the resources that will benefit the entire community of people passionate about the web.Arno Gourdol, Senior Director for the Web Platform for Adobe
