Accessibility Club Conference 2018 — Monday, November 5th, 2018, Berlin

1-day webworker conference 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.

Over the past few years, our tiny meetup has grown and received a lot of attention. So for 2018, my co-organiser Stefan Judis and I decided to scale it up to a full-blown conference format. We're happy to bring you a diverse line-up of both invited accessibility experts as well as a handful of "community champions" who entered one of the 42 fantastic talk suggestions via a public / anonymous Call for Papers:

We're expecting at least 150 attendees this time and try to make the event itself as accessible as possible. Please find all the details over at the dedicated event website.
