In this session, Aaron Gustafson will introduce you to Web Standards Sherpa, a new resource from the Web Standards Project. The goal of Web Standards Sherpa is to "provide helpful, pragmatic and up-to-date advice on best practices for web professionals everywhere" via brief, focused instructional critiques of existing websites (most of which are submitted for critique by the site's audience). Aaron will introduce you to the people behind the website and walk through some of the ways the site distills the best practices discussed into digestible tidbits that you can put to use right away.
