From Documents to Apps: Evolving an Open Web

Join us for “From Documents to Apps: Evolving an Open Web” – in which Molly Holzschlag will discuss the entire state of Web development/design and show the Open Web Technology Stack visually from back end to front end.

About Molly Holzschlag

Molly E. Holzschlag, known to many as “mollydotcom” or just plain “Mols” is an author, teacher and Open Web Evangelist. She has spent the majority of her 25 years in IT working with the Internet, and observed the Web emerge and evolve from its first days at CERN. She has spent the years since educating herself and others about the Web, its languages, and its core philosophies.

Currently an invited expert to the W3C, Molly works globally to connect consumers, businesses, Web designers, developers, browser implementors and tool makers; encouraging cultural diplomacy, technical interoperability and professional excellence.

Honored by multiple organizations and sites as one of the most influential women on the Web, a long-time friend and colleague once quipped “If Tim Berners-Lee is the father of the Web, than Molly is its fairy godmother.” Warm, colorful, and interested in everyone’s stories and successes, be sure to say hello at an event or on Twitter: @mollydotcom

Venue: M@dison Building

This historic theater building, where Detroit came to see what was new, was reshaped as a long-awaited hub for high-tech entrepreneurial activity and special events. Features include inspiring spaces for anchor businesses, a desk-for-a-day environment for enterprising techies, a 150-seat theater for technology events and a rooftop terrace overlooking Comerica Park and Ford Field.


The Detroit Tigers will be playing a home game on the night of this event. The game will start at 7:05pm and since the M@dison is located so closely to Comerica Park we suggest you allow plenty of time to arrive and park.

Limited parking will be available at the Detroit Opera House parking structure, located on Farmer Street between Gratiot Avenue and Monroe Street. Cost for parking at the Opera House parking structure is expected to be $20. You may be able to find cheaper parking further away from Tiger Stadium, taking the People Mover, getting off at the Greektown Station, and walking to the M@dison.
