A HUGE Sydney web standards group meeting coming up on Tuesday 19 August. We have three great presentations and four great presenters!

Presentation 1: "Findability: going beyond SEO"
Presenter: Radica Raeves

Search engine optimisation is usually the first subject that comes to mind when thinking about ways to improve the visibility of your organisation online. But it's only a piece of the puzzle. In order to help the intended audience find, use and reuse your information, we need to look beyond SEO. Findability could help complete the puzzle. It's a much broader concept, touching on almost every aspect of the web design and development process, where specialist fields intersect and overlap. We need to try and identify these elements of findability and "plug" them into the user-centred design workflow. It's a big challenge... Can we connect the dots and bridge the gaps?"

Presentation 2: "One Web, No Go"
Presenter: Oliver Weidlich

With the improvements in mobile browsers and in the overall
mobile user experience, what do we expect will change for mobile web users? Will we see a 'one web' approach? Oliver will talk about why the mobile and PC web experiences will increase in similarity, but still remain very different.

Presentation 3: "Building web apps for iPhones"
Presenters: Tim Lucas & Pete Ottery

Where to start when making a website targetted at iPhone users, including "Should you be?". Frameworks...Javascript...Dev environments... and more. Tim Lucas & Pete Ottery share some experiences about creating iphone.news.com.au.
