I’m happy to announce here that I will be speaking at Accessing Higher Ground in November, representing Knowbility. The conference is in Westminster, Colorado and coins itself as an “Accessible Media, Web and Technology Conference”. I will do two three-hour long workshops:
- Advanced Accessibility: A Deep Dive for Developers
Tuesday, Nov. 15th, 9am
- Simplify your development life with tools, tests and procedures
Tuesday, Nov. 15th, 1:30pm
Developers are lazy. I know this because I am one. So having tools, tests and procedures in place that help developers to produce accessible templates and widgets is helping everyone. This workshop will give a broad overview about the possibilities and will also show how to implement some of the provisions in day-to-day work.
Also, I will give two talks:
- Semantic Subtleties
Thursday, Nov. 17th, 8am
This talk takes some of the semantic particularities that come also up in the workshop and will put them under the microscope and examine their meaning.
- ARIA Serious?
Thursday, Nov. 17th, 4pm
Here, I will presumably give a few good and lots of bad examples of ARIA implementation and show where the pitfalls and chances of using ARIA are.
