A collective project between Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Coil, W3C, Samsung, and Igalia to support the creation and maintenance of strategic web platform documentation.
High-quality documentation for web platform technologies is a critically important component of our shared, open digital infrastructure. Today, I'm excited to publicly introduce Open Web Docs, a collective project between Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Coil, W3C, Samsung, and Igalia. It is designed to support a community of technical writers around strategic creation and long-term maintenance of web platform technology documentation that is open and inclusive for all.
This is not a new docs platform: Open Web Docs is instead working closely with existing platforms, and its current priority is contributions to MDN Web Docs. It was created to ensure the long-term health of web platform documentation on de facto standard resources, independently of any single vendor or organization. Through full-time staff, community management, and Open Web Docs' network of partner organizations, it enables these resources to better maintain and sustain documentation of core web platform technologies. Rather than create new documentation sites, Open Web Docs is committed to improving existing platforms through our contributions.
