Details

We're excited to share our 2nd event will be a special accessibility workshop run by Beverley Newing (@WebDevBev).

* Intro to Accessibility Testing *

The latest WebAIM study found that 97.8 percent of the world's top 1 million websites have accessibility issues. Accessibility is clearly something we need to start focusing on more - but it's also complex. Where do you start? How do you start?

So in this friendly, supportive workshop, Beverley will share resources and give you a broken website and the opportunity to practise doing an accessibility review. Issues will range from basic to advanced, so there is something for everyone, regardless of your experience level or background!

This is a workshop, so *please bring a laptop* if you can! But if you can't bring one, don't worry, we'll be able to share.

p.s. Geese references will be included, so please also bring enthusiasm for waterfowl!

6.45pm: Welcome
