Speaking on Accessibility at 2014 HTML5 Developer Conference
I will have the pleasure of speaking at the 2014 HTML5 Developer Conference in San Francisco, taking place May 19 through May 23 (I’ll be speaking on May 22). The quick overview of the conference:
I will be speaking about accessibility and how it relates to you as a current and future user with my presentation Selfish Accessibility. The full abstract:
We can all pretend that we’re helping others by making web sites accessible, but we are really making the web better for our future selves. Learn some fundamentals of web accessibility and how it can benefit you (whether future you from aging or you after something else limits your abilities). We’ll review simple testing techniques, basic features and enhancements, coming trends, and where to get help. This isn’t intended to be a deep dive into ARIA, but more of an overall primer for those who aren’t sure where to start nor how it helps them.
My bio and the abstract are on my speaker page on the HTML5 Developer Conference site.
