Event: Friday January 30th, 2015 at 12 Noon EST (5pm UK)
Daniel Appelquist, who describes himself as an “open web advocate”, joins us to talk about TLS on the web: some good reasons for using it and the common objections to it. As someone with a very wide experience in IP and network communications, a session with Dan and our VUC regulars should be excellent!
Dan is also a co-chair of the W3C Technical Architecture Group (W3C TAG). The TAG is a special working group within the W3C, chartered (under the W3C Process Document) with stewardship of the Web architecture.
