If you attended the event after a day of CSUN talks, then you already know role=drinks was a blast. If you did not attend, I assure you that Job did a great job organizing such a great time, all the way from across the ocean. There was great food, a large selection of drinks, and plenty of people who came to enjoy both.

There was also the opportunity to hear people speak about accessibility. Job did a great job creating that opportunity, but a combination of terrible acoustics, sub-par PA, and brains full from a full day of sessions meant that not everyone cared. That was completely cool; everyone needed to just be social and Job adapted accordingly.

But not until after I got up and tried to spend 10 minutes talking about the lang attribute. After shouting my talk into the din, proving that my (lack of) public speaking skills are no match for beer and friendly conversation, I consoled myself with some very tasty tacos. Here are the slides I promised for all five of you who could hear me:

To try to prove that people had a good time and therefore ignored me for good reason, I have embedded some slides.

Disclosure: I Sponsored

I was a sponsor (originally the sponsor). This did not guarantee me a spot to shout into the aforementioned din, I earned that just by asking.

Screen shot of the sponsors from the event, mostly because I was pretty happy to not only be a sponsor, but also the top-billed sponsor. Other sponsors, in order: Accessibility Camp Toronto, The Paciello Group, Accessible Media Inc., Accessibil-IT, Global Accessibility Awareness Day, and Tink.
