Web developers the world over understand the benefits that standards-based development provide, but how do you get management or a client to understand as well? A small band of committed geeks got AOL and Time Inc. to embrace Web standards, not only in the Development organization, but throughout the company -- including Design and Senior Management. Come learn how they did it, and how you can do it too.
We'll also be showing some new stuff that shows the progress we've made at AOL since the geeks started taking over, including the use of Microformats and our efforts to develop our own.
