We've got another two great talks lined up for Bristol ID&D's second meetup, this time from Emma Howell (Research Director, cxpartners, Bristol) and Ian Pouncey (Senior Accessibility Engineer, The Paciello Group).

Doors open at 6.30pm for refreshments and networking; first talk starts promptly at 7pm.

Important: To help our members avoid disappointment at not being able to attend due to no-shows, we've decided to start charging a small ticket price, which we intend to donate to charity. Thanks for your understanding.

Talk 1: We need to talk about Frank: designing for the wild child of government by Emma Howell

Talk to Frank is a government service that provides drug information to young adults. cxpartners were asked to redesign it last year, and at the heart of their work was inclusive design. Emma will share how this worked in practice - from setting up the project, to the day to day practicalities for the cross functional team. She will share the measurements from the project that show the value in inclusive design.

About Emma Howell:
Emma is currently Research Director at cxpartners. Her favourite projects are those that help to improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of society and to better local communities. She has recently worked with people at risk of suicide, people with an increased risk of lung cancer and domestic abuse survivors.

Talk 2: How to make an inaccessible website by Ian Pouncey

In 2019, web accessibility is mainstream, but a quick search on your social media platform of choice will reveal designers and developers who resist the idea that all websites and applications should be usable by anyone. These people are underrepresented at conferences; this is the presentation for them. Anyone who cares about their users might find something to learn as well, in this presentation that covers the best and worst of (in)accessible HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

About Ian Pouncey:
Ian Pouncey is an accessibility specialist and web developer with an interest in user experience. Now spending his time helping designers and developers create sites and apps that are accessible to everyone, he has been working on the Web for more than nineteen years with career highlights including the 'Metro' version of the Yahoo! homepage and the framework on which all BBC web pages are built.
