It’s the end of an era. The web site that dedicated itself to publishing articles about best practices and web standards at webstandardssherpa.com is shutting down.
Here’s how Aaron Gustafson, the founder, put it in his announcement on Facebook.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that we are closing Web Standards Sherpa. As of April 2, we will be archiving the site in order to keep the valuable insights and techniques shared by our authors available in perpetuity.
To make that archive a reality, the Sherpas teamed up with Environments for Humans to create an online conference called Sherpa Summit. The summit features four expert sessions and live Q&A roundtable sessions that will let attendees from all over the world take part.
The online conference is on April 2, and you can save 20% if you register now using the discount code SHERPA.
UPDATE: Because of illness, the Sherpa Summit had to be postponed until April 23. A side effect of the delay is that you get more Sherpas for the Round Table Q+A’s: Steve Fisher and Dan Rubin!
