On May 9th, I’ll attend the IndieWebCamp Germany in Düsseldorf. It is part of the beyond tellerrand week which I will miss as I am leaving for Austin on May 10th. That means also no second day of indiewebbing for me, unfortunately.
For an overview over all upcoming events I am attending, see the brand new event calendar!
While being in Austin for AccesU in May, the AccessU Summit takes place online. I will speak about “Web Accessibility Essentials Using WAI-ARIA and HTML5”, a short version of the course I give in person in Austin the day before. Other speakers include John Foliot, Henny Swan and Christopher Schmitt. Ticket prices are $179 for an individual or $479 for a meeting room ticket.
Since the last weekend, I am honored to be one of the lecturers in the master course “Content Strategy” at the FH Joanneum, a University of Applied Science, in Graz, Austria.
The materials are available at cos.accessibility.rocks and are freely available. In the last few lectures I only covered basics to bring everyone on the same level. All lectures are held in remote “Google Hangouts on Air” that can be joined by everyone.
This is an exciting opportunity to teach people accessibility pretty early, so this gets an integrated part of their work.
Back in the day, there were a lot of CSS Galleries. Most have been relatively uninteresting, but CSSMania and Stylegala stood out. While the former is still going strong (yes, I’m equally surprised), the latter faded away at some time and is now a 403 error. I still find me typing in “sty” in my browser when idle before realizing that the resource isn’t there. At least my browser is auto-completing to styleguides.io, which is a resource that fits better into this time.
