Accessibility Club #6 — with Heydon Pickering — Monday, November 6th, 2017, Berlin

Hands-on webworker meetup about all things web accessibility & assistive technology

The Accessibility Club wants to give you the chance to get some real-world experience with assistive technology, deepen your knowledge about web accessibilty and get you in touch with like-minded webworkers. The goal is to enable you to make accessibility a natural part of your daily work and mindset.

While the necessity and benefits of accessible services on the web are pretty obvious, web accessibility is still not a widespread practice. Common reasonsings range from putative additional efforts, tight budgets to the misbelief that "validity equals accessibilty". In many cases, however, it seems that the majority of developers simply has no clue where to start — which comes as no surprise as most of them have never gotten their hands on assistive technology.

Organised by Joschi Kuphal & the tollwerk team, kindly supported by trivago. Please find further details on the event website.

Welcome our special guests: Charlie Owen, Heydon Pickering, Caronly Stransky, Tantek Çelik & many more

As side-by-side-ing with the wonderful beyond tellerrand conference became a sort of tradition in the meantime, we are especially delighted that no less than 4 btconf speakers — Charlie Owen, Heydon Pickering, Carolyn Stransky and Tantek Çelik — announced their attendance of our little meetup. We're sure they've got interesting insights to share — be part of it and share yours as well!

Attention: In contrast to our very first conference last year, this one is going to be a barcamp style meetup again. Please visit our event website for further details about the event and its agenda.
