Developer Relations Manager, Opera Software
Chris Mills works for Opera, splitting his time between evangelising Opera’s software and web standards, and heading up Opera’s developer education activities. This last part includes speaking at conferences, publishing regular web design and development articles on dev.opera.com, and being the creator of the Opera Web Standards Curriculum. He is a self-confessed web geek and English language geek, having worked in various geek education roles for the last 8 or 9 years.
Outside of work, Chris is a “heavy metal warrior”, playing really fast drums for many bands, including the mighty Conquest of Steel. He lives in grimy Oldham with his lovely girlfriend Kirsty, son Gabriel, baby daughter Elva, and 3 Macs.
Chris Mills is speaking on the Web Standards and Accessibility in Higher Education panel.
