It is time for this month’s Auckland Web Meet Up on Thursday 11th September at 6pm and I’m really looking forward to it. I have had to miss the last two events, however, this one looks like it will make up for that.
A very brave guy from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team in Redmond will be presenting the upcoming IE8 browser, followed by Robert O’Callahan from the Auckland Mozilla team that are working on the next version of Firefox. I’m impressed that Microsoft are doing this and I hope that the open source guys don’t give him too much trouble!
The agenda was set before anyone even knew about Google’s Chrome browser. 2008 is going to be the year of major browser releases and the implications for the web dev community are massive. I highly recommend making the effort to come along to this one.
