Railshöck Lightning Talks

Wir führen "Lightning Talks" durch: Kurze, spontane Vorträge (5 bis maximal 20 Minuten) über ein Projekt, ein gem, eine Technologie, eine Erfahrung. Alle Teilnehmenden sind frei, etwas vorzustellen.

Wenn uns die Themen ausgehen oder 90 Minuten um sind, gehen wir in eine naheliegende Bar und diskutieren noch etwas weiter.

    Thanks for letting me have my talk about WAI-ARIA. In my opinion, accessibility is a very important topic (from a social and also an economic standpoint of view), and I hope I was able to spread some sensibility for it.

      You are 100% right, Karl. A naturally and clean organised website doesn't need anything in addition to be accessible - you can add some helping features like jump links, hidden texts, etc., but in general Accessibility 1.0 is all about clean code. For rich internet applications, it's another thing though, and that's where WAI-ARIA jumps in.

      Yes, there are good reasons to have JS-oriented web applications and then this whole "clean HTML" approach does not work. But I think you can distinguish between static or static-like pages, for example reading Wikipedia, and real dynamic pages, for example editing Wikipedia. For the dynamic pages JS is really helpful and I guess this will bring us to WAI-ARIA. I am looking forward to hearing about it.

    I will give a talk about WAI-ARIA that is divided in two parts: part one will give an overview over accessibility statistics in the internet environment, part two will be a concrete example on how to use WAI-ARIA to make rich internet applications accessible.

      The whole thing is getting too big! I will only do part one this time and prepare the 2nd part for next time. :-)

    mein Laptop ist gestern "abgeraucht". So würde ich meine Vortrag gerne um 4 Wochen verschieben.
    Herzliche Grüße

    I will give a talk about my first impressions of Rails 4.1 including demo of an app using some of the 4.x features.

    Would you like to hear something about Elixir? It is a new language, done mostly by Ruby-Guys. The syntax closely reflects what we know from Ruby, but it is running on the Erlang VM and conceptionally closer to Erlang than to Ruby. I could prepare a short talk about it. What do you think?

      I won't be around but the topic sounds very interesting Karl!

  • Karl B.

    I am willing to give a talk on this event.
